New Direction …

OK, even I am tired of the We’re Related endless start, stop, restart, and trying to figure out what bad trees they are basing their predictions of relationship upon.  The final straw was today’s notice the Ron Howard was my latest cousin — he was also the first person they reported well over a year ago when it started.    So, I am going to take this blog to a new direction.

Today, I want to send a big THANK YOU and Shout Out to the City of Farmington Historical Commission and the Farmington Genealogical Society.   Last year they took on the task of cleaning up the gravestones in the Quaker Cemetery in Farmington — one of the oldest in the county.   My four times great grandparents, William Lee and Mary Sommers Lee are buried there along with other family members.

The stones BEFORE:

And now, after they were restored:

About Pat Shaul

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.
