Exploring the Branches

Who knows what interesting stories might show up as we search through records of names and dates?

During my research I read about a couple who had died one day apart at the ages of 112 and 118. They had been married for 94 years. I find those kinds of facts fascinating, even though these people were not even in my family tree.

I am just beginning to get into the family history and look forward to many interesting hours exploring the tree, starting with the direct line, and eventually 'branching out'.
