Pictures!

One really fun part of doing all this genealogy research is getting in touch with distant relatives who have their own information on parts of the family tree. There’s a lot you can find on the Internet, but there’s a lot that’s special about talking to people who can provide information first-hand; people who either are or knew the people you’re researching. This picture is of Sanford J Herzog (who is my first cousin 3x removed-in-law…if you were wondering). I’ve been writing to his granddaughter-in-law, and she sent me this picture. So cool! Even though we’re not related by blood, I always love to see old pictures of people on my family tree- especially since I have so few pictures of the people I’m directly related to. Thanks, Dorr!
