I don’t have as many stories to write about my maternal ancestors. Mostly because my Aunt Terri has done such a wonderful job researching this line that I haven’t had to put quite the amount of work into it as I have on my paternal line. Because of Terri I know some really cool things about this side of my family. Like the fact that I descend from a Mayflower family, and that on this branch alone I have over ten (I think she has found 14 actually) American Revolution patriots. This information took my Aunt Terri alot of time and research to prove and I am so thankful to her. It is great to have another genealogist in the family. But now I need to go back and use the records she has shared with me to find the stories behind the facts. So I am going to spend some time each week getting to know one of my maternal ancestors and then write about him/her every Monday. Maybe I can even get Aunt Terri to share some stories of her own.
Stay tuned next Monday for a little story about Beryl Catherine Richert, My Great Grandma.
