Getting closer to giving names to these faces of long ago.
A cousin kindly sent me some more family photographs. (Thank you D.W.!) A snow scene caught my eye. My aunt had given me a similar picture a few years ago of a couple standing in snow, the woman holding a snowball. These ...

Finally a match from the Y-DNA test.  Now to figure out how he matches . . .
My father finally has a Y-DNA match at Family Tree DNA. Both my father and the person who is a match tested 37 markers. His surname is not Lutter. (Another person tested 111 markers, but there are too many differences to q...
