A wonderful day of research!

I guess this is what makes genealogy addictive… I found another generation of Saengers in my mother’s family.  Not only did I find a set of g-g-g-g-parents but I found all of their children as well as the spouses of these children.

I am always amazed at what original source documentation provides in terms of insights and clues to the past.  In spite of bad handwriting, blurry photos and water damage, ancestors just seem to jump off the page at me.  It is a true journey into the past.
