The Family Tree

I went and visited The Bro tonight. He is once again staying at a local motel while in the area working. He brought a bunch of the photos he is collecting from various family sources. His hobby is the family geneaology, which has been an interest of his for about three years now. In this amount of time, he has managed to get a pretty large collection. He brought along, "the best of the best" to show me, as it would take hours to go through them all otherwise. It was pretty amazing to see pictures or copies of pictures almost one hundred years old. What was also neat was to see how some contemporary relatives have a striking resemblence to ancestors from decades ago. He also had a family tree showing names, dates, childrens names, on and on. Needless to say, the hat I had brought with to work on, didn't get touched. But he is only in this area for another day, so I got to take advantage of the time that he is here.
