My First Post.....
If you are reading this, you have probably been invited to view this blog. Obviously, there are many branches of our family tree, so some families will interest you more than others. I think you will find many of the items interesting, even if the folks involved aren't your direct family. Some of the families which will be detailed are the Stout, Lemaster, Hoffman, Bagley, Roe, Foster, Beasley, Wood, Norton, and Pease.
Whether you were born into, adopted into, or married into this family you are now a part of the story. My main hope for this blog is to help us all feel closer to each other, and maybe better understand our role in this story.
Let me know if you have any suggestions!
So, if you are wondering 'Who were our Ancestors, Really?', here is an example. It is a picture of Sylvestor and Lillie Hoffman, taken in about 1903. This was about 5 years before their son, our 'Grandpa Joe" was born!
Lastly, you can leave comments or questions on the articles anytime you would like. If you are interested in contributing articles, just let me know. You may not consider youself an expert, but if you think about it, you likely will have some story, family recipe, old family picture, or maybe you have a old keepsake you could photograph and share with the rest of us!
