Photo# 28: First Cousins
This very cute photo is of me enjoying a popsicle with my big girl first cousin, Kathy. She and her brother, John are my only first cousins. They still live in the Connecticut/Westerly area and I have not seen them since my father passed away in 1998.
I carried this photo in my wallet for a long time. I really like photos of kids in their play clothes. This was taken on a Memorial Day in Bradford, Rhode Island on Bowling Lane. This story of mine for the challenge should end they way it began with my father's family. Immigrant families can be so much more fun to research but I must admit, I have spent a lot of money doing so. I hope my ancestors are happy with this.
I have found so many things that need clarification in my charts and so many missing dates by working with the information I have gathered for this challenge. I have a huge list to work with. The photos are all in archival envelopes. All are scanned to jpg and many to tiff. All are backed up. I have accomplished much but have so much yet to do.
But, for now, I must get one of my writing projects started again plus get back to writing about gravestones and project based genealogy. Thanks for riding along with me on this adventure! Thanks to all those who helped me with my research.
I have learned that many people find commenting on blogs clumsy and "too public" so if you'd like to ask questions or make a comment on this project, please feel free to email me at: email@example.com
