This is today's list of vital events from my family tree database. I have photos of two of the people who had something happen on January 2. I don't know how often that will happen. Maybe some of my cousins who read my blog will be able to contribute more to add to the posts.

Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
