My Fair Girlie


Who doesn’t want to spend twelve hours straight at the civic center?

But, she won the school social studies fair, then the county social studies fair, so off we went to the state social studies fair in Charleston. It was a big deal. It involved two different kinds of lip gloss and everything. She even combed her hair!

In the end, she won an honorable mention, which was pretty good for a family history project in a fair that included such excitement as a mummified chicken. (Who can compete with that?!)

    Is that the famous genealogy chart of some time ago. I think I remember it. It looks as if it was fleshed out since then. So she must have done a lot of work on it.

    I sure wish I could do as much with my ancestors but I know we lost a lot of things to bombs, especially on my mother’s side. I heard that one of my father’s cousins was trying to get together with more scattered relatives. On his side, both parents came from families of over a dozen.

    My brother started doing the genealogy for my mother’s and his wife’s family. That was a good thing because both my mother and his wife’s mother have passed away. His mother-in-law was the last of her particular line. She fled from Latvia in WW II with her older brother, leaving behind at their insistence her parents with 3 younger boys. She did find out that they were all killed by the Russians. Now she lives on in her 4 children and 5 grandchildren.

    Ruby, that is so sad about your brother’s mother-in-law! How awful.

    Yes, that is the same family geneology project Morgan did last year only she remade the board completely and added quite a bit–and this year made it to the state competition with it!
