An Embarrassment of Genealogical Riches

This is what I face everyday and while I am not ungrateful for this legacy, I am overwhelmed by the process of sorting its importance.  Stacks, boxes, photos...Well, I am very lucky to have someone coming to help me get started tomorrow.

From Frank to Allen to Mable to Dad to us not to mention the other line too which gave us the Checkered Chicken AKA The Lucas Chicken (very old: so says the yellowed note inside her belly).


  1. Oh wow...that can feel quite overwhelming.

    But I bet you get it sorted out.

  2. Hey there! I really enjoy your blog and am giving you the One Lovely Blog Award! Please go to and pick up your award!

  3. @ Dee and Leslie Ann,

    Thanks for your support and appreciation. :-)

    Slowly,slowly --at least I'm on the job now.

  4. This is such a great project! I enjoy reading the Checkered Chicken every day. I see a CC book in the future!

    Happy Paddy's Day!
