Come! Share the Journey of Family Heritage Stories, Laced With Patterns of Living Throughout Generations of Time. We Are All A Remnant of A Rich Tapestry, Waiting to Be Rewoven Together.

Welcome

Many of us find ourselves longing for a connection to something, or someone from the days we cannot touch; sometimes inspired by a photograph or a scrap of withering notation we found tucked away between the pages of a book in a long-forgotten trunk, or some emotion we cannot ignore. There seems to be a common thread that connects us all to the past; be it a name, an expression, or a geographical placement in this timeline we call mortality. Whatever it is that connects us, and draws our thoughts and hearts to one another, seems to be the passion that brings us to this blogging thing. My hope for any connection leads me to share with you some commonalities in blogging, daring to claim a place among the great writers; but if nothing more than my own journaling, it will be a tangible way for me to make sense of my own individuality, vulnerabilities, and emotions as I continue on this journey called life. I hope this blog may encourage and uplift.

Paper Boats (My Research)

On this page I will share some of my research in the form of documents, records, or other resources that might help in providing evidence for my research.

 Many years ago, when I began my journey of discovering my ancestors, the methodology behind the research ranged from simple: ask your family; to time consuming: writing to the Genealogical Societies; or visiting a local Family History Library, where you might get lucky and find a book on the shelf, miraculously mentioning a familiar name; or requesting a film or other media, from the vast collection of archived material held by the LDS church. 
When I discovered what worked for me, I launched my boat into the sea of unknown; praying, and hoping for the wind to direct my sails to that place called family connection.
With my mother's help and enthusiasm, we set sail together for a lifetime journey of  joy, frustration, confusion, discovery, and a passion for piecing the puzzle of family history.
