The Village goes to College
















I just reserved a treasuretrove of information and pictures from the late 1800 and early 1900 on my fathers family. The Alexander's of Tennessee. Tuesday Arkansas Northeastern College had a class on the history of this part of northeastern Arkansas and how we got here in Blytheville in the 1800's. As I may have said in the past blogs I am addicted to genealogy and for 4 years have been compiling a book on ( Parts of the person I am)

That takes a lot of patience and research. I wish I could make myself do it. Great Job!

I'm so glad that the Bennie is back home and doing well, in plenty of time to carve the Thanksgiving turkey.

How cool to get all that information on your father's family. I'm sure you'll love looking through each item.

Looks like you hit the Jackpot about your family. That's wonderful. Remember there is another class for next week.

How interesting, Patsy. It is wonderful to find out about one's roots, isn't it? You have some great old pictures to put in your book.

Have a wonderful day!
