Genealogy

With the addition of Tony to our happy clan, I have become increasingly interested in family history. My mother’s side of the family is a veritable fountain of wealth, and I have great records to work with. (Thank you Aunt Amy.)

But I know little about my father’s side of the family. I can go back a couple of generations, and remember many a family reunion, but other than that I am stumped. One thing that sparked my interest was the dinner set that has been on display at my parent’s house as long as I can remember, and I am half thinking probably as long as I have been alive.

Carpenter CrestThat brings me to the Carpenter Family Crest. My father has an authentication for our crest from the Sanson Institute, and I have been searching for a picture. I have not come up with an exact match, but the thumbnail to the left is the closest that I have come.

This also leads me to locating a free ware genealogy program. I am sure there are better programs out there, but this one certainly does the job. Personal Ancestral File has provided me with a good start.

What I have accomplished so far has barely touched on my wife’s ancestral history. I am curious about her heritage as well, and would love to pass this information on to our children.

    We have a hard copy of the Carpenter family history back to 1761 courtesy of your Aunt Jeanette. And ….curious is how you spell curious.
