...and searching for VonAchen's in Santa Maria

After having paid tribute to my Nana G I decided that since I remember her passing I should probably had a photo of her tombstone in my collection of family photos.  Find a Grave to the rescue!!!!

Please say hello to Nana G and my great grandfather "Denny" (Vonachen/Grumbles)

...and Wishing all a Happy Fourth!

I haven't posted since Mother's day and I feel horrid about it.  It's difficult to maintain a blog, work on family history, raise 6 children and work full time.  Oh and get sleep.  Sleep is good.

Since my last post, I have gone to the monthly antique fair several times and collected pictures that will eventually make their way to my scanner and most likely be post here at the pool. 

I have also made the decision to change software for my history.  I have used FTM for so long, and I think it's making me stagnant.  I am leaning towards Legacy but I'm still undecided..

I have also taken a few pictures for Find a Grave that I am happy about.  I plan on going to SouthLawn tomorrow for more pictures.  I am a little depressed that the request that I submitted for Keith's stepfather hasn't been claimed yet though (Macon County Memorial Park, Illinois). 

That's it for now, I will be posting pictures this week for Tombstone Tuesday!!!

Happy Forth of July!
