Genealogical Society

Ok.  I just looked at the calendar and realized that summer passed me by.  What? Here’s my excuse for not keeping up with the golf course shenanigans.    Then, I’ll get on with the show.  First up, at the end of April, my dear, sweet, grandma passed away.  She was 99 years old and lived […]
