So now I'm finding out more about my Great Grandfather, Jose Maria Perez. He was 56 years old when he married Maria Sabina Contreras who was 30. They were both married before but their spouses had died. He was widowed 7 months and she for 9 years. I even got their spouses names and will be able to do their work at the Temple soon, but first I must make sure it hasn't been done already.
I'm so glad I made copies of all the records I've found cause I get to go over them again and find more inormation. In fact I think I have some things wrong and so back to the Library I have to go and do more research so I can fix everything. I have one of my Great Great Grandfather down with 15 children, and I think something is wrong. The thing is that so many of these people have the same name and then I find different spouses for them so I have to look again.
These are the joys of doing Genealogy, search, search, search. But when you get it right, oh what joy. I just hope someone is up there helping me. If so, I think it's Linda, cause she was just getting interested in doing her Family History before she died. We had planned to come to Salt Lake and do some reseach in April and she passed away in February.
Well, the family is growing and it makes me feel good to see that we're finally getting some girls coming down. I''m getting the itch to sew again, we'll see how successful I am. I've got patterns already and now to organize the time.
Not done yet!
