    Genealogy Spring Cleaning - Wash the Windows

    Instead of sharing a new and original family tree, I am sharing an old yet lovely rendition by my Great Aunt, Mercy Kinsel MacPhee, sister to Arline. Mercy was at the center of a sensational missing-persons case and later found quite happily married to Scotsman Angus MacPhee.

    Mercy had a keen interest in the family genealogy and was also an accomplished artist. When her eldest  niece graduated from high school, Mercy presented Lucile with a hand-written and illustrated genealogy. Although I have not confirmed all of the names, dates, and places, many are proving to be sound conclusions. It will be hard to top Aunt Mercy's beautiful illustrations with my own version of our family tree.

    This is the fourth day of my week long checklist of spring cleaning tasks for my genealogy archives. Follow #genspringclean on Twitter, and share your updates too.\
