OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got some exciting news! So out of desperation I sent off what I knew about my Great Grandpa Louis Boon and Great Grandma Mary Bauwens to the Dickinson County Michigan Rootsweb email group and GUESS WHAT?! I got an email from a group member that had info on the families INCLUDING where they lived in Belgium! This person lives in Belgium so he can do research in the area that mine lived in. I think our families married into each other or something but he's not directly related.

What Are the Odds....

What are the odds....a sibling decided to move to another state, a small town surrounded by mountains.  A few years later, my mother decided to join him.  Neither sibling or parent had ever been interested in their family history, until I filled them in that they had moved to the same small town that my mothers 3rd great grandfather and family were buried.  They thought I was kidding and asked me to prove it.



On a recent trip to visit them, I took my mother to the small church and…

Anticipation

Anticipation making my heart beat faster, eagerly I opened the envelope. Opening the first paper, I read my great-grandfather's Declaration to become a Naturalized Citizen of the United States.  The feelings I had were almost overwhelming. a mixture of elation, relief and satisfaction as I realized I had finally broken through the impasse and yet another piece of my family's history was now complete. After sixteen years of searching, I had his marriage record, census records, newspaper…
