Away for a while

Hi to my followers: I will be on a hiatus from this site for a while.  My son was diagnosed with ALL Leukemia last week, so we are still in the hospital, and when we go home he is going to need lots of help from me for a while. So, I don't know when I will have the time or energy to dig into genealogy.  Though I'm thinking that in a few weeks getting a few minutes to do research will be a nice way to relax.  I may drop into post here and there, but as you can ll understand, my son needs me and my energy right now.

I'm not deleting the blog and look forward to getting back to my genealogy work.  Thanks so much.

The Face of Genealogy

Photo from collection of Mary Bolt Lloyd, now
owned by Jeri L Jones
I believe this picture was taken in 1902,
the youngest boy is William Bolt who was born
in 1902

One of the many faces of genealogy: Columbus Franklin Bolt, born 26 Jul 1874 in Chambers Co, AL (my great great grandfather) holding his son James Olin Bolt, 12 Feb 1900 - 25 Nov 1971 (my great grandfather). Leola Linner Barronton, born 30 Sep 1876 (my great great grandmother) holding William Bolt, 26 Apr 1902.
