Day 81: Genealogy
My wonderful husband has become an avid genealogist since he's been in retirement. Like a modern Sherlock Holmes he finds the search for details about the past and how it all hangs together to be infinitely satisfying. He has more than 21000 names in our family tree on Ancestry.com. These two large charts were prepared for family reunions last year. The one on the bottom shows the Madson lineage and the one on the top of this photo shows the Phillips clan. He is working now to prepare a tree to take to our Ryan family reunion in Virginia Beach the second week of July. He makes me proud. What a guy!
