"I saw behind me those who had gone, and before me those who are to come. I looked back and saw my father, and his father, and all our fathers, and in front my son, and his sons, and the sons beyond." ~ Richard Llewellyn
Cousins Found on Wikitree
I was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at Baton Rouge General Hospital. Schools I attended: East Brookstown Elementary School, Prescott Junior High School, Livonia High School, and Cotton Valley High School. There was also a school in Lafayette, Louisiana, but I don't remember the name.
I graduated from the LPN program at Baton Rouge Vocational-Technical School in 1977 and I have worked as a nurse ever since (37 years and counting).
In my nursing career I worked for 1 year in the Well Baby Nursery, 5 years in Neonatal Intensive Care, 16 years in Home Health, and 13 years in Long Term Care. I have been working with Alzheimer's patients for the last 3 years.
I have three wonderful sons, and five awesome grandchildren. We are a Louisiana family, although I am now living in New Mexico, my heart is in Louisiana.
As a young child I was fascinated by the old family stories. I would sit and grill my mother about my Grandparents, their children, and so forth, writing everyone down with their birthdays, children, etc. I would read my Grandmother's family Bible with wonder. Who were they, where did they come from? On family trips, usually to a funeral, my father would be telling all the old stories about the family. Why didn't I write it down? My Aunt Bill and Uncle Tom would take their family vacations every year to a different area where our ancestors had lived and go through dusty old files. How much could they have done with a site like this? All the old story tellers are gone now. I feel it is up to me to pass this rich history on to my children and grandchildren. Personally, I gain strength from knowing my ancestors and the contributions they made to their country and their communities.
I love this project, and yes, I am a Wikitree addict. Through my research I have found connections that I never knew existed, and I can't wait to see what I can discover in the future.
