Last WWI Veteran- "The Last Torchbearer"

Sunday, the last World War I veteran died...my husband told me that from across the room this morning.  The information struck me as....sad....its like the end of a legacy. Frank Buckles was 110 years old and died natural causes at home.

May he rest in peace....and thank you, Mr. Buckles, for your service to our country.

Checking In

I apologize for my recent, inexplicable absence from writing, but I have been in the process of moving the past few days and life has taken some unexpected turns.  There have been many changes, but at least I have my genealogy.  In fact, as I get ready to leave this morning to go pick up the uhaul, it makes me wonder what my ancestors went through when they moved from place to place....and let me tell you, some of my ancestors seemed to do that quite frequently.

My plans to go to Jamboree this year has been put on the back burner this year...my daughter needs dental work.  pffft!  We still have plans to travel to Pennsylvania this fall...hopefully...and discover my Fitzgerald roots!

Until then,
Happy Hunting!
