Family of Origin

Under Construction

This page is difficult in a different way than my failed marriage, but with just as many stories and memories that need to be shared. I’m looking forward to it, though also difficult.

Family of Origin in Book form:

The Volume 1 of my Biography/Scrapbook series of books is right now the best look at my family of origin and what happened in my childhood and young adult years up to age 30. I literally converted many years of scrapbooks into a printed book, adding some information or stories and it is these additions that I hope to expand on here at this page of my website.

For now you can review the book electronically online, every page, free, by clicking cover or title here:

First 30-Years Scrapbook, My Photo Biography Volume 1: Birth to Age 30.   It is in my bookstore and available for sale as well as free review.


See my sister Bonnie’s Quilt Gallery, with photos of many of the quilts she has made including the brown & gold one for me!   🙂
