Last week my mother's death appeared in the list, and this week my uncle's does, which brings back memories of what a bad month January 1995 was. When I started this exercise I hadn't thought about the fact that those dates were in January and would show up so soon. But happy memories come back also, and it's good to commemorate their lives.

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.
