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.)

That is an awesome idea! I enjoyed reading through family histories when Pierce needed a story for Primary. Would never have thought to put them in a blog though. Love it!

I think that is a good idea too. Maybe I will do that for our families when I finish some other projects1
