I am currently working on my Family Genealogy Group page for Facebook. In doing so I realized I have a tremendous amount of photos. I decided to feature one a week. No, not everyone is “perfect” however, they are to me!
This week I am showcasing my paternal 2nd Great Aunt Parthenia Ogan. She was born on February 18, 1847, in Windsor, Pettis County, Missouri. At the age of 21 she married James Woodard. I really love the dress she is wearing. It gives the sense of elegance. This was taken in 1915, when she made a trip to visit her ailing sister in Covelo, Mendocino, California. I think she looks like a very friendly, kind woman.
I am a professional genealogist, writer, photographer, wife, mother, and grandma. I have two books available on Amazon.com: Your Family History: Doing It Right the First Time and Planning Your Genealogy Research Trip. You can also connect with me via Facebook or Twitter.
