My Granddaughter ~ Two Steps Ahead Of Me

Image
Princess Lulu asked me why I do genealogy all the time. I asked her, "Do you know what genealogy is?" My five year old granddaughter replied, "No." 

I explained to her that I love my family, and I love to learn more about them, especially those who are no longer with us. She thought about this for a minute and answered, "Oh, you mean like the grandma that was with grandpa L.?" (The grandmother she is referring to would be my mother, her great grandmother, who passed away before she was born.) "Yes, like her."
A few weeks later, I again picked up Princess Lulu and brought her home to get ready for her dance classes. She pulled out a paper she did at ESS (the after school program) and said, "Look what I made grandma!"
I looked and saw a bunch of different color painted blobs on a piece of paper next to each other. I replied, "Oh, how beautiful Lulu! What are they?"
"Oh grandma, don't you know?"

"This is (pointing…

Urias (Cachi) Abel Chaverri-Oviedo

Image
Today, our family lost a great man. 

I add the passing of my husband's stepfather to the family tree. 
It is very difficult to be away from the family in Costa Rica at this time when there is so much sadness. They have lost their father, grandfather and great grandfather, the patriarch of the family. Our thoughts, hearts, prayers and love are with you all.
My husband and I are very grateful to have spent time with Urias in July and August of this year. He was an amazing man, even at 98 years old when we saw him last. 
He treated my husband as if he were his own son. He had a heart of gold, and would ask us daily if everything was ok. He would walk miles to find and surprise my husband with his favorite fruit when we visited.
I have been blessed to know and love this man for almost 25 years. He was an inspiration to many. He left a piece of himself with each of us, never to be forgotten.
Thank you, Urias, for everything you brought to this world and for the family and memories you have l…

Post Your Brick Walls ~ It May Lead To The Best Birthday Present Ever!

Image
September is the month of my birthday. One year ago, I celebrated my birthday in Sweden with cousins I met for the very first time! Five years ago, I didn't even know they existed. But now, I have had the best birthday present ever! 
One of my Swedish cousins found me through this blog about 4 years ago. It is true, blogs are cousin bait! My cousin saw a post I did April 2, 2009. It was Sept 20, 2010 when he found my post. Yes, almost a year and a half since I wrote it. Does that matter? Not all all, he found it and I am forever grateful. He left a comment saying he thought he could help answer questions on my Lundberg family in Sweden. When I finished reading his comment, I was stunned as his last name was Lundberg!
Thanks to the We Tree Blog for posting weekly blogging prompts because I was following and posting those prompts. It was Blogging Prompt #12 that caught my cousins attention. The prompt was:
"Use your blog to break down a brick wall. Posting may ring a bell with a r…
