This blog is about my journey through our family history. Some will be my efforts to develop our family tree. Some about photographs or details of our families’ lives. I will primarily focus on the Miller/Paschen/Erickson/Rachow/Wolf families on my side and for my husband’s family it will be Lakes/Miller/Minter/Carmack/Short. The photo that I have placed as my banner is a digital photograph I took at my cousin’s cottage in central Wisconsin when I was there in the fall of 2011 on a genealogy trip, of course. Wisconsin is my home in many ways even though I only lived there until I was about 2 years old. I appreciate you visiting my blog. I hope that my thoughts somehow touch or encourage you! Happy travels!
