After the Reunion

Hello Dear Reader,
Before we said, "Good night," to our newly met shirttail relatives we agreed to meet them for breakfast at 8:00 the next morning. When we arrived at the breakfast room there were other good people we were introduced to and immediately felt a connection with. But that was just the start of an amazing day.

The reunion was over and everyone was heading their separate directions. Marieta, however, said she wanted to show us some of the area before she headed back to her home in Indianola near Des Moines. Needless to say we were delighted. She gave me several documents including maps, cemetery records and two sections of her Application Portfolio. She recently became a certified genealogist--the only one in the state of Iowa. Congratulations to her for this well-deserved honor.
