Summer means Family Reunions….

Summertime in Michigan in my childhood always meant uncomfortable family reunions, where I didn’t know anyone but my parents or grandparents. As an adult, I love them!!

My beautiful Aunt Mary…. you can see me digging through a box of old photos behind her! 🙂 (Pic credit: Connie Rolland)

I am usually the one sitting with my head stuck in a genealogy book or digging through old photos. Or writing down information about an old family member.

There is so much to gain by just sitting and listening to the stories the older generation has to say. Even if your not interested in genealogy, knowing the stories from your family is so important.

My Aunt Linda usually has the LASH reunion at her house, and this summer we were afraid it wouldn’t happen. I am so excited to share that it did happen!!
