  5. I have to thank you! I have been tracing my roots and I had no clue about my grandfather Lee Arnold Smith's family, until I came across your family tree history. Amazing! It is so good to know where I came from. Thank you so much for sharing! Laurel Brunken

  6. Thank you, Laurel. It is a comment like yours that keeps me going! My youngest daughter is going to Europe this fall, and one of her projects is finding out more about our Michael Smith - son of Beatrix, above. In fact, she called me from her home in Austin, just last night, and asked some questions, including about Beatrix!
    Please send me a note, if you will, at billsmith2003@gmail.com so I can keep in touch with you as we find more information. OK? Thanks! ;-)
