Rolls of white -- the family tree

My husband's family tree

It's been almost a month of working on my husband's family tree.
There is so much to update and record.
these ARE "the days of our lives"...
the passages
the good times
the sad times
the births that give us hope that there is a future
the deaths that are so final... most of the time a full, long life...
and then the times when I life is cut short
it is all in God's plan
the commitments that are strong
and the commitments that are broken
it is all recorded
history will repeat itself
life is a cycle
we just have to keep going forth
it is all in God's plan
the seed was planted
the crops continue
the harvest continues
it never ends
we create a legacy
it is all in God's plan

Enjoy White Wednesday at Faded Charm Cottage!

It sure is...all in his hands...and what wonderful hands to put our trust in! :D

It IS all in God's plan! That is a lot of work on those rolls of white paper! Good for you! It does take you back and show you history, some good and some bad!

I hope you have a sunny day where you are my friend!

I love genealogy and have spent hours researching the various branches of my family. It absolutely does put things in perspective and knowing what our ancestors went through so that we could be here brings tears to my eyes. Loved your post!

It's so much fun, and so much work, tracing the roots of our family trees, isn't it? My husband has been working on his side of the family and mine. He's run into some roadblocks though, because it seems that when my family landed at Ellis Island, the people taking their information misspelled the last name. So it's taking a wee bit longer!
Happy White Wednesday!

I'm so lucky that my mother-in-law is into geneology and has done my husband's side-now I just need to find someone who has done mine-it's so rewarding-but time consuming.
