This color family book printing project was a delightful tribute that came about when the author and his wife reunited with relatives in Wales after 60 years.
The author’s relatives in the United States had lost contact for over 60 years with relatives in Wales. Through some DNA connections, he reestablished communications and with his wife, traveled to Wales to meet over a dozen cousins that he did not know existed. The author’s grandfather was one of 11 children born in Wales. His genealogy book encompasses all of the 11 siblings and their descendants, stories, pictures, houses they lived in, and churches they attended. It’s a beautiful keepsake for the entire family!
