This Blog focuses on Ancestor Stories, both the stories themselves about my family’s ancestors and discussions of where they come from and how to prepare and share them. These stories may be non-fiction or fiction – we will always tell which is which, of course. Also see my KINNICK blog and The HOMEPLACE Series Blog, left sidebar, scroll down.
Last Sunday, as I posted my first Sentimental Sunday post, I received via email the following newspaper clipping, from a friend, with this note: "I found this article this morning and I thought it might be of interest to you. You may already have this, but I wouldn't feel right if I had seen it and not sent it your way!" Thank you, Lori Hellmund, this is a real benefit of an ancestry blog. I had the info, but did not have the actual newspaper clipping. How neat! THANKS, again, Lori!
