Roots, twigs and branches

The frustrating thing about genealogy is that when one discovers it as an interest, most of the people in the best position to help are already cemetery tombstones. But I guess that is the fun part, too; trying to piece everything back together from available evidence. There must be a TV program in there, somewhere...

Anyways, with priceless assistance from friend and very distant relative Jackie in Vermont, the Niles (mom's side of the family) story becomes a bit clearer each year (can't say each day or each month because I can't devote that much time yet). I close this entry with a couple photos, one four-generation photo of great great great grandmother Jane Hadlock Niles and her boys of various levels of greatness to me. The second is a group of relatives yet unknown but determined by Jackie and her friend Joan to be at Roche-a-Cri near Friendship, Wisconsin.
