Sharing Family History

 My mother, Patricia Ethel Hanson (nee Sullivan) died on August 4, 2013 and
we've just finished all the sad duties related to her funeral and burial. Luckily,
I had been interviewing Mom about her young life over the past few years
and had created a scrapbook with her stories. We had this scrapbook at the
viewing and funeral and it became apparent that the grandchildren didn't
really know much about their family history. As we relived family events
through stories and pictures, the grandchildren hungered for more
information about who their grandmother truly was. The purpose of this blog
is to share this information with them and to track the genealogical journey
I've begun to make in uncovering my family's history. This blog is in your
honor, Mom. With lots of love, your daughter, Lynn.

    1. Sali - please be sure you share with me (us) the stories you know - I know we all have different stories with different perspectives, all of which will help us know our family and our grandparents better.

  3. Welcome to GeneaBloggers, Lynn. Having a blog is terrific and loving tribute to your late mother.
