Genealogy is quite addictive. I started decades ago doing the research and recently have inherited many family documents and photos. This I Leave is the place I can share these things. It’s a good way for everyone to have the photos of our ancestors – they should be available for family members, especially distant cousins that I don’t yet know.
I would love to hear from anyone touched by these photos and stories.
Family names include Claycomb, Duncan, Bressler, Oakland, Alderman, Bell, Biddlecombe, Boynton, Brown, Brundage, Cation, Denman, Egeland, English, Fair, Gochenour, Goddard, Lain, Love, Lurvey, Mather, McDaniels, Mercer, Patchen, Pierce, Rosenberry, Sanderson, Tannehill, Tapper, Townsend, Treat, Voaklander, von Seggern, Wild, Wiswall, Yates, and more.
Localities include Illinois, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, New York, Scotland, Norway, Germany, and others.
Earlier excerpts from my grandfather’s diaries and other family stories were posted on my first blog Alwaysbackroads.wordpress.com under those tabs at the top of the page.
