« Baby Jenette’s tombstone reset in Iowa family plot | Main | H.O.G.S. blogger No. 1 takes on a new challenge »

June 23, 2009



In 25+ years of research, nothing as exciting as Rich Remer's story has happened to me (so far). My mother's side of the family couldn't have cared less about ancestors, so perhaps it was a blessing I didn't have to dissect stories handed down over and over. However, I did learn that if I asked about a person on the tree and the response was a quick "Oh, he died young", that person probably died of old age after siring several more children by one (or more) new wives. "Passing over" a county or state line seemed to "resurrect" all but the truly "dead"!
