Addresses to Mrs. Effie [Lee] Weaver: “Sat Morning.  Dear Sister, Do not worry about me, I am all right this morning only a little weak, was much better yesterday and should have sent you a card but will try and have it get out this morning.   Myra [Lee Churches]”

Genealogist / Family Historian; Blog started as a record of my Grandfather's post card collection which ran for 15 months. Then, in June, 2017, I changed over to reporting and commenting on notifications from the ANCESTRY app "We're Related" I then started to provide snippets into ancestor biographies on the dates that were significant anniversaries.
