The generations on either side of me link me to my past and my future. My view of family history involves revealing the roots and the branches.

Throughout this blog you will find perspectives related to the doctrines of temple and family history work from revealed revelation given to living prophets of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS - Mormon).

My Relatives
Eleh Lenore Thompson Shumway Lazenby*

I am making a book of my treasures.
They are lovely and precious to me.
Records of special people,
Who go on my family tree.
There are ancestors, nieces and nephews,
Each in his place on our line,
And the things I find out about them,
Are mostly good and fine.
Each one has traits that endear him.
Things that set him apart,
From all other uncles or cousins,
And give him a place in my heart.
A place in my life and my memory ----
That no one can take away.
Who could have greater riches
Than these I have today?

*Eleh is the Great-granddaughter of Elisha Hurd Groves and Lucy Simmons Groves.
She is my 2C3R.
