I'm coming along on my quest to discover more on my family connections.
It's interesting to come back over things.
As I look back, I wasn't aware of the clues that I keep following.
Those clues led me to other things that I wasn't looking for.
God is amazing.
I couldn't have gotten where I am now without Him.
Thank You, Jesus!
Here is the list of In Remembrance: In Family History: August
I hope that you find some family connections
Thanks for reading.
