Today would have been my mother’s 100th birthday and she would have enjoyed a big celebration. Here’s a video I made for her 90th Birthday party in 2008.

“THE BOOK”

I had planned to have the family history book completed by today, but I missed that deadline. It WILL be completed in her birthday year – 2018. Target date now is September to have ready for the printer.

What have I been doing? reviewing and editing, with the help of my sisters. Updating the genealogical summary with the help of my many cousins. Some are “new” cousins I’ve met since I started writing the book.

Fixing the photographs for the book. I’m also getting some more photographs from cousins. To paraphrase the old Girl Scout song: “Find new cousins, and keep the old, one is silver and the other’s gold.”

I have created a list of objects to photograph – some large, most small – they include: an Al Smith campaign button my Aunt Bessie (Shanley O’Hara) had; my grandmother Colbert’s locket; my grandmother Whelan’s Irish accordion; and much more.

Happy Birthday Babsie

A few pictures of her through the years.
