The poem this week is about the brother of a relative through marriage as told by their dead mother. They grew up in an abusive orphanage, but the subject of the poem did not keep quiet about it!

Wonderful, Luanne–so fascinating to get the back story–and to get the back story on how you got the back story. 😉
LOL, I love that! The back story on the back story! By the way, have I told you that we’re at a complete brick wall for the other side of the gardener’s family? And it’s so annoying because I thought that one would be easy since it’s such a large family. When the Scheshkos turned out not to be too difficult I thought we were clear sailing. Apparently NOT.
Oh, that’s frustrating. Good luck. I haven’t done too much with genealogy lately. Older daughter has considered hiring someone to check out records in Belarus, but I don’t know if I want to spend all that money!
My person is much more reasonable than most if you want her contact info.
Thank you. Sure, if you want to e-mail it to me. I didn’t know you had done that. I’ll let my daughter know. 🙂
How lucky you are to have so much family history to access, Luanne. You’ve garnered endless interesting stories. Thanks for sharing 🙂
It seems as if it would be such a waste not to do anything at all with Grandpa’s stories and all the photographs, etc. I feel a responsibility, if that makes sense.
Wonderful work, Luanne
Thank you, Derrick! Have a wonderful weekend!
So interesting, Luanne! You have a gift with family history as well as writing. This series represents both. 🙂
