I am putting together a short genealogical book for my newborn granddaughter, Kaylee, for Christmas this year. It's one of this simple "fill-in" 'OUR FAMILY TREE' books. You just fill-in the blanks and the work is completed. I have made one of these books for each new-born grandchild, with a printed history of our entire genealogy given to each child for safe-keeping for their children.
Last night as I was working on filling in Kaylee's book, I realized I had never taken the time to get a copy of her great-grandparents marriage record [my ex-husband's parents]. Thankfully, I have access to those records online, and was able to look it up in only a matter of seconds.
