In my research of tracing
my roots I have found that when speaking with others
that have not embarked on the task of tracing their
ancestors, that they somehow feel that great great
grandparents are somehow removed from the immediate nucleus family.
Well in reality great great grandparents are not to far out of reach.
Pictured above is my oldest son "Benjamin" and his mother
(me), grandmother (Loretta), great grandmother (Odessa)
and great great grandmother Addie "Barnard" Walston,
b. Mar. 14, 1885... that is 5 generations believe it
or not. We were soooo blessed to have shared this special "day"
together. This picture was taken abt. 1972 and
little did I know at that time how important this
picture would be to me one day.
