My family, my life, my story. This blog is my record of my search for ancestors here in the United States and their countries of origin. It is also a record of my life and that of my descendants. Genealogy is a long time passion of mine and I hope you will join me. My main surnames of interest are Grashoff, White, Chaffin, Wells, Matzdorff, Fogleman, Stinehart, Omvig. Past, present, and future all come together. Preserving the present is as important as discovering the past.

Today in My Family
Today is my grandson's fourth birthday.
He was so excited for his birthday he was singing happy birthday to everyone and everything. That got me to thinking about the family birthdays he shared. So I went to my Roots Magic and printed out a calendar of events for today. Jayce shares his birthday with Frank Stinehart who would have been 146 today, Thomas T Omvig younger at age 140, Whelma Marie Schmidt age 102, John B. Gearhart 184, Bernice Isabel Chaplin 110, and William Loren Ayers 124.
He is an amazingly happy and interesting young man and definitely has some traits of his ancestors. He is a story teller like his great, great Grandpa White!
