Re: Family History
In Response To: Re: Family History ()

The very first reunion was held over 10 years ago and only a few showed with mostly first cousins...I was not able to go as I just had my first child. The only history known was that of my great grandfather and most is unknown about his childhood or who his parents were. I have yet to find anything about him since starting my genealogy research.
The research of my great grandmother goes back to slavery and this information is not known to all. This is the history that would presented.
Everyone would be hearing this for the first time and I will be meeting cousins that I have never known. I live in California and live the farest away from all my relatives. I have one GreatAunt that is still alive and in her 80's, but she doesn't know much about her father and his people. Apparently he didn't talk much about it. There have been many versions of his life, none that I can prove.
Thanks for some insights. Telling known oral history, especially about my great grandfather would be nice.
