I was so bummed over the week end.  My cousin, who I thought, and she did too, were cousins had our DNA done.  The results came back not a match!

I feel bad because I had to talk her into it.  But you can't choose your relatives.  So......she is my cousin because I choose her to be my cousin.

Now that that is over, back to the drawing board.  I looked at the pictures in my mother's photo album again.  I feel like I've gone over and over each picture with a fine tooth comb.  I did find a picture of her aunt with her new husband.  I didn't have his name and now I do.

My mother was really good with this particular album.  She started it on the first page with her name and the year.  Then under each picture she put the person's name and the date (year).  This has made it a bit easier, but, here is the dilemma. 

My mother married Roy Eisentrager Apr 1941 and he left for Camp Clebourne, LA a day or two after their wedding.  In Jul 1941 she is with Alan Schreiber at a park in WI.  Then all of 1941 she has pictures of Jr. Waverly from Waterloo (him in his uniform in front of her house then helping another couple cut wood).  In Jan 1942 she has a picture of Roy in his uniform standing on the porch of their house.  From divorce papers it states she was linked with Bud Wyburn in Feb 1942.  In Mar 1942 she is with Jr. Waverly in Golden CO standing in front of  Buffalo Bill's grave.

Now you see where I'm going with this don't you......I'm trying to figure out who is actually my father. 

Any ideas????

Until then..........................................

It's been a week, almost two since my cousin sent in her DNA sample.  I say my cousin because we are 99% sure we are cousins but the DNA will tell us for sure.

I found this cousin about ten years ago as I was looking for my biological father.  We would be fourth cousins.  Since then we've shared information when we found it.  Sent each other pictures.  Then about four years ago she introduced me to another cousin.  This cousin would be a first cousin.  Now this cousin has sent me a lot of pictures of her mother and uncle plus pictures of the grandparents.

One of the first pictures I received from the fourth cousin was a one of mother, grandmother, sister and brother.  The brother being (maybe) my father.  The first thing that struck me was, I have a baby picture just like this.  I rummaged through my pictures and sure enough I found the picture, same poise, head tilted the same way, looked the same age, hair line looked the same, and same cheeks.  Now I told myself I was reading something into this picture because I wanted it to be the right person. 

Fast forward now to two years ago when I looked at a picture of one of my grandsons.  In the back of my mind I said to myself I've seen this face before.  I pulled all the pictures out that my first cousin sent me and sure enough there was a picture of my father (?).  Same ears, nose, and smile.  I sent a copy to my daughter and asked her if he looked familiar.  She agreed that it looked like her son.

So, now here I sit waiting for the results of the DNA.  Hoping that all my circumstances will pay off.  Were all these pictures something I was wanting to see in my mind.  Or will all of this together tell me that this man really is my father?

I'm on pins and needles.......but the friendship I've made with the fourth cousin will remain in my eyes and mind will always be my fourth cousin, no matter what.

Until then.......................

As I look over all of the posts I've done for this last year I realize I still do NOT have my book finished.  Is it laziness?  Busyiness of life?  Or just plain well I don't know what to call it!  Scared!

I do get caught up in research.  The driving force behind me that won't let me go.  The need to really know who my father is.  Not that I want to be part of his family or anything like that.  I just want to know about my ancestors.  My heritage.  To know I belong, well I belong somewhere.  We all do.  I know I am God's child but I'd like to know who my earthly father is!

I did host the big family reunion this last year.  Finished that book, but as anyone knows, looking for your ancestors is an on going process.  So I'll keep searching for Nathaniel's parents in New York or where ever they came from.

Along the road I've made new friends, looks like they maybe be relatives, and found long lost relatives.  It's been fun and rewarding.  Like putting the pieces of the puzzle together.  I'll keep you posted on my finds.

So until then.........................................................

I'm finally home again.  Had a wonderful time on our mountain vacation.  It was quite cold a few days but we weathered through it pretty good.  The day after we arrived home our daughters gave me a surprise birthday party.  And believe me it was a surprise.  You have to get up pretty early to surprise me and they did it.  Of course, it was probably because we were out of town that they were able to keep little mouths from letting the cat out of the bag.

So today I will be trying to play catch up and then get ready for Thanksgiving.  AND of course we can't forget black Friday.  My daughter says "It's tradition Mom, we have to go shopping".  So once again I will be up before day light and join the ranks of the other mothers, grandmothers, etc., and push the cart while the girls go fetch and I keep their place in line to check out.

I wish a very blessed Thanksgiving to one and all.  And hope the men don't wear their thumbs out changing channels to catch up on all the games on turkey day.

Until then...................

New Week New Challenges

My dear readers

I am really behind this week.  Story of my life.  I am my biggest challenge.  First of all I took a long week end to be with six other crafting sisters.  We do this every year, taking off to our retreat in the hill country to do our Christmas gift crafting (and of course get caught up on things we've put off throughout the year)!

I for one put together two picture scrapbooks of the big family reunion.  Then I set out to work on Katie's story.  I have not forgotten Katie........  I guess I was tired because I hit a key, and don't ask me what key, but I hit THE key and erased the whole page I was working on!  How upsetting and I know there are a lot of other writers who have done the same thing. I'm trying to remember what I wrote, and believe me that is not going to be easy.  I can't remember what I had for breakfast this morning (already). 

Enough of that...

So later today I will have the obits from this last Sunday posted for those of you that keep up with that.

Later today, no house work, only errands to fix the grandson's tablet I got him for his birthday, then it's back to writing. 

So until then................

Well I finally fixed my blog to my liking....I mean the layout.  I need to stop clicking on icons and then having to figure out what I did wrong!  I know, I know, I should take some classes.........DON'T HAVE TIME!!! 

Still working on Katie's life story........I just love this little girl.  I get writer's block a lot so please bear with me.  AND then there is the other thing where I wander off when I do research.  Before you know it I'm knee deep in census pages and then looking in counties trying to find histories of towns, people, and places.  It really is wonderful that someone over a hundred years ago felt compelled to sit down and write about the history of the town and it's people.  It certainly helps us that are trying to find answers now.

So my challenge now is trying to find (real life people) Katie's sisters.  This is going to be a really, really, really, did I mention really???? challenge!!!   Especially since I do not have names!

BUT I have DNA.  My DNA.  So the search begins. 

Until then........................

DNA and Genealogy

(this is not Indian Kate as a child but I thought the picture depicts her)

I AM working on Katie........will get it finished, have it critiqued, and get it published; even if I have to publish myself.  Katie has become a part of me.  We've become very close.  I can almost feel her presence, see through her eyes, and smell the fresh fragrance of the woods and rivers.

Now to let you know what I'm working on.  Not that I've put aside Katie, but what I've run into is I think I may have located Katie's sister's family!!!  Shocking isn't it.  

The big thing is there isn't very good records, written records to collaborate this.  Just lots of digging into old files, stories, and well you see where I'm going with this.

Oh did I mention DNA?  I am related to a family with Native American through DNA.  We are working on the link.  So it does look, or am I just hopeful, that I really am related to Katie?????
I would be honored.

Will keep you posted on the on to the process.  Oh my goodness so much reading!!

Until then...........................

Yes, my friends there is a part two of the conference.  I came home brain dead!  In overload!  So much information.......and now to put it to use.  I was not able to get an appointment with an agent or editor because they wanted a finished manuscript before they would talk to you. finish Katie's story and get it to the right agent, editor. 

Second husband text me and told me the computer crashed!  That was on Friday.....I got it back today.  We shall see.  So glad I have a laptop, just not used to doing all my work on a laptop but guess I will get used to it. 

If you have liked the story about Katie so far let me know.  I do plan to finish and will keep all my readers up to date on what is going on.  I could use some incouragement from time to time.  I get so caught up on research I tend to let the writing slide.  Some of you probably know what I'm talking about.

I will also keep you informed on the DNA research.  If anyone out there is just a little bit interested in DNA I recommend they have it done for themselves.  Even if you know who your parents, grandparents, etc are it's kind of fun to see the graph on where your relatives came from.  Two links you can go look at to research, price, etc is and

Anyway I'm working my fingers away flowing and pounding away at the keys on the computer.  Will keep everyone posted.  Until then.................................

This is it.  I leave tomorrow morning, very early, for the big conference in Dallas.  I'm excited, I'm apprehensive, I'm scared, and everthing else.  This is the first BIG conference I've gone to.  Will they like what I've written?  Is it good enough?  Am I going to remember to take everything I need?  Will they like ME????

Just because I believe in myself and my story will anyone else like it?  Is it written well enough?  Does it keep the reader wanting to read more? 

I'm so full of questions.  Unsure.  YIKES......

I can do this.  I know I can.

Will keep you posted.

Until then dear readers.........................................

Oh yes, I'm working really really hard on the dna.  Found a my father.........whoever he maybe!!!

Until then.............................

Working On Katie

Here is my dilemma......I have been working on my story about Katie to bring it to an end,  but next week I will be going to a writer's conference.  I plan to pitch my story on Katie to editors.  So for the next five days my time will be workng feverishly on putting together my one sheet and for whatever else I need to be able to present the story.  I will keep everyone posted and let you know what I will be doing. 

This is the first BIG conference I've gone to and I do have a bit of anxiety about it.  I will raise my concerns up in prayer.

Until then.......................
