Welcome to my genealogy blog where I am putting on pictures that I have acquired of my family. Along with any history that I find on them. If I have met that person and can remember something about them, then I will add that story too!
Some of our family names are: Utterback, McKenzie, Armstrong, Riggs, Ralston, Parker, Maupin, Dilbeck, Leister, Smith, Clough, Bowyer, McPherson, Andrews, Howard and Allen. I will only be putting on those last names up to my fourth generation, as you will see in the tabs. If I get too many last name of a different generation, I might need to put that on also. Example: Dilbecks.
I am glad ya'll came a visiting and hope to see ya back!
Thanks for stopping by!

A Trip to Donner Pass in 1941

A vacation trip for my mom and some of her Armstrong relatives! My mother (Emma Armstrong), her father (Harry Armstrong), Aunt Raynell, cousin Kenneth Ramsey,Great-granny Armstrong and cousin Patsy Armstrong, were able to go visit Donner Pass, California. I did a little research on Donner Pass through googlesearch.com, so that I could get a feel of what it might of been like. In the winter of 1941 there was a blizzard. The picture of it from: http://myoldadz.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=301, was too blurry. Some very interesting reading from here:
