His Dad had a huge family and my side was so small. That was when I said "I will see if I can learn something about my family. I started going to the Fort Worth Public Library one day a week when both of my sons were in school. I had some amazing teachers, ladies from the local DAR and I was the only young person going to the library on a weekly basis. The ladies started looking for me on my usual day and taught me so much.
