I started my genealogy search in 1984 to provide a little family history for the 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration of our parents, Lloyd F. PUTNAM and Dorothy A. (née. DOUGHERTY). The presentation made was well received but there were a lot of questions related to family stories that were unanswered. My sister, Madeleine, became interested in finding some of those answers so we joined forces and made our first trip to Salt Lake City’s Family History Library in 1991. After many years of off and on research, field trips, one website, several online classes, and getting our family members to do their DNA, I have decided to start this family blog This is the result of many enjoyable hours we have spent trying to solve the mysteries within our family history. There are still some elusive relatives and Madeleine has been known to ask on occasion, “When will we be done?”
Gosh where have the years gone. I have been attempting to blog on a weekly schedule, since 2014, while still working a different and mostly 8-5 business. Now I am devoting most my work hours to genealogy. I hope this blog has reached and entertained a few. And Madeleine, we are still not done!
