Of all the funeral cards, that circulate out there, I wonder how many ever find their way back to the families of origin. A simple funeral card is the summation of a life lived.
Enjoy the discovery process.

The Genealogy Junkie on a Mission blog is a book and movie all rolled into one.  The author, Teresa, a relative newcomer to the Genealogy Blog World has a story to tell.  Her saga begins when she stumbles across that her husband's surname is not Whitt, nor Hamilton; as previously told.  She discovers, Paul Elton Aspey, former Fort Worth, Texas police officer to be her father-in-law.  As she follows the research trail, she finds that Paul E. Aspey aka Thomas J. Hamilton had changed his name, then skipped the Michigan state line to avoid paying child support, only to meet, the woman who shoots and paralyzes him for going fishing in his dress clothes on a Saturday night.  The first in a series of short stories of the deep dark secrets in her relative's past.
As details unfold it appears to be the work of fiction, but is shockingly true.
If you want to learn excellent people locating skills and read a budding novel at the same time, this is the blog to follow.
