Bowman and Seher Families
The Genealogy of Joan Bowman Asche
My family tree fell down and I can't fix it.
I have not spent much time on my own genealogy, choosing instead, to volunteer to help others. It's a personal choice and I don't regret it. The death of my brother in 2009 has hit me hard because he committed suicide (there I said it that horrid, unspoken, shameless word -- suicide). Not only did he commit suicide but for the four years prior to his death he cut off contact with me and I couldn't find him. He was my baby brother. I loved him so much, the pain lingers; and not a day goes by that I don't think of him.
It also brings to mind why many of us try to plow through those genealogical brickwalls when our ancestor's families fall down. I suppose that psychologically speaking that's why I volunteer so much.
