Flowering Branches

When I first began this blog, I had 4 children and one grandson to whom I wanted to leave a legacy, a map and trail of who they were and those who had come before us.

Since then, I have acquired a new daughter-in-law, son-in-law, grandson and granddaughter.

Yesterday was the arrival of my first granddaughter. She was born on her mother's birthday. Wonderful plan, saves me from having to remember too many different birthdays when I get older.

A family tree is not only the roots, but also the living, growing, flowering branches. And my branches are flowering. I now have 3 grandchildren and in a few short months I will have 4.

Welcome to the world little Princess. You are so loved.


  1. I have SO very MUCH enjoyed reading your articles! I too am a descendant of the Palmers, and am writing up the histories of all my family branches for posterity.
    Thank you for being there! Lucia Hansen
