Gathering...

I am happy to say that there will be a big family gathering in Maine this fall!  Everyone who can will be heading to the family homestead and I hope to meet many cousins who I do not know. Between now and then I will be polishing up my genealogy work and hopefully filling in a few blanks, solving a mystery or two. Of course a few extra days added on to the trek to do some research!
