Happy Thanksgiving!


Yes, it is nearing the end of the day… turkey is eaten, leftovers are packaged, family has left and I am enjoying the sounds of the dishwasher.  As I ponder the day and the many, many things I am thankful for my thoughts turn to my family.

Nearing five years ago five beautiful children came into our lives and a year later we adopted the younger four.  Was it a challenge?  Yes!  Have be been blessed?  Yes!  Would we change anything?  Hmmm, maybe a few things.

Our oldest son is now 18, the second is 16 and our daughters are 13 and 6.  They do not look like my husband or I but as we watch them grow we see so many things we have taught them.  We are typical in that way, you wonder, “Where did they get that from?” and then, you make the same face, say the same thing and realize the reflection that your children are of you.

They are each unique and fun individuals.  The boys love to play sports, our 13 year old is a great piano player and our 6 year old is a barrel of laughs.  The three older have done a little indexing, and are quite good – one proud mama.  It is important to us to share our heritage with them and to share family stories from all of their family lines.  We have added a whole new extended family, and are grateful for our three trunk family tree.

On Thanksgiving we are reminded of all that we are thankful for every day – family, friends, work we enjoy, a roof over our heads, food in the pantry and to have content and happy lives.  From my family to you and yours, we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi Anna,
it is nice to have a large family. There is so much fun and laughter. In my teens I always dreamed of having a whole football team. After I had three children and realised the expense and responsibility I thought three is enough. We in Europe also have a day of thanks giving. It is not a public holiday, but is celebrated in schools and church. I think we all should be thankful for having enough to eat and a good life.

That is a beautiful story Anna, bought tears to my eyes. Best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful life together.

I am thankful that I have the physical and mental abilities to key records for ancestry.
As I add to my family trees I realize how critical these records will be for future researchers.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to help with this research.

Lovely story Anna – we had foster children for almost 18 years – 95 of them, mostly newborns. Loved to sit in the rocker at 6a.m. feeding the new baby his/her bottle. Longest time any stayed with us was almost 5 years.
