For the past two years, I've been doing a bit of research on my father's side of the family. My grandfather came to the United States in 1913 from Austria along with his brother, 2 sisters and his parents.  He was about 4 years old at the time.  From that photo, I had an aunt that was still living - she was 99 years old when she passed last year.  I've gotten in touch with just about every living relative on my dad's father's side of the family.  Next will be my dad's mother's side - but genealogy is a good winter project.  Today I visited with my dad's two cousins and his aunt.  Although she is in her mid 80s, she still has a sharp mind, so I take advantage of that as I search my family tree.  Below is a card that I'm sending to my dad's cousin and his wife to thank them for joining us for lunch today.  Really it's just an excuse to color up my Tilda stamps!  Have a great day and take the time to search your family. is a great way to start.  Thanks for stopping by.
