HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

April has some birthdays of significance to me and the first of these is
today! My Aunt Dorothy, my Dad's younger sister, is celebrating hers
today. Longtime readers of my blog will recall that it was Aunt Dot who
got me started on genealogy by sending us copies of her research years
ago. They helped me when I began my own research online.

She also wrote out a thirteen page memoir of growing up with my Dad
up in Oxford County Maine during the Depression. And two years ago
she gave me the West Family Bible.

I won't say which birthday this is (a gentleman never discusses a lady's
age!) but it isn't relevant in Aunt Dot's case because she's very active
and often cares for a very energetic group of great grandchildren.

So thank you, Aunt Dorothy, and may you have many many more
Happy Birthdays!
