Our New Family History Blog
For many years I've been collecting family histories and family photos of my ancestors. It's been a lot of fun and I've had some adventures and surprises along the way.
Just recently, it occurred to me that I could post these histories and photos to a blog, and then they would be available on the Internet to others, particularly other descendants of my ancestors.
So I am hereby announcing the debut of "Where We Came From," a blog for our family to post life histories and photos of our ancestors, Farrier and Davidson. I invite you to check it out--who knows, maybe we are related!
I've just started uploading the stories and pictures--one of my goals this year is to finish this project.
(Sidenote: Don't laugh about being related. When we first moved to our ward, I was asked to give a talk on my "spiritual heritage." I decided to tell some stories from my ancestors. After Church, a sister whom we'd started to be friends with said, "Hey, those were stories from my ancestors!" We discovered that our dads are first cousins! Small world.)
