Making a Cake in 2018

Where did 2017 go?   Everyday last year was jammed pack. I worked on WikiTree; networked on family history; helped others with genealogy; took care of family matters; enjoyed grandchildren; visited historical landmarks; read three or four books; and gardened (sort of); and spent a lot of time in the kitchen cooking and baking.   It is now the beginning of a new year.

The first layer of  my cake was thinking about writing about family members in the new year. The second layer of the cake was my daughter found a box of photographs at my mother-in-law’s house.  The icing on the cake was Amy Crow Johnson’s 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks challenge.  I may not make 52 ancestors but I hope to write about some of them.

Are you wondering how we came upon the box of photographs?  My mother-in-law came to live with us last December.   It has taken a year to clear out her home.  The final push was in the last couple of weeks before Christmas and that is when we found the photographs stashed away, in all places, the utility room.
