    Extensive research went into Anita’s findings, but difficult to follow all the interconnections. No easy solution, but perhaps using the diagram presented at the end would help and referring back to it each time an ancestor was discussed.

    Anita spoke from the heart. Such a gift from her mother that she had the opportunity to hear her family’s oral history. Thank you Anita. I have just ordered 3 of your books on Amazon and look forward to finding out more about my early roots.

    Her genealogy descendancy was a little confusing, but her research and documents were great
