  4. I am one of your newest followers. I love what you are doing. I just found your blog today. I've been trying to match names and faces in my own feeble way on my blog (http://afamilytapestry.blogspot.com/2011/08/who-are-these-guys.html) and I'm very encouraged to see your persistence and "Full Circle" stories. I hope you don't mind, but I just wrote an entry about your blog, which will post in a few hours. Thank you for sharing what you've found!

  5. You are so right. Her hair is stunning. It makes me wonder if she had help arranging it and if any of it are hairpieces. I know the gibson hairstyle was packed with padding so I wonder if this had some help. it is beautiful.
