Sites like Find A Grave have been incredibly helpful in my ramblings searching for family. The good volunteers at FAG have provided photos that have given us clues to relationships (or not) and sometimes additional information they may know just living close by. I especially appreciate those who allow us to use their photos on our Ancestry trees and blogs. It is good to know where our ancestors are ‘quietly resting.’

The Golomb family is collateral kin- Sarah Green (Sarah Gren), sister of our Abraham Green (Abraham Gren) married Louis Golomb and had 13 children- yes, 13. Our dear grandmother remembered that number but I had been unable to verify until a recent census recheck showed that two children had died before the census was taken. There also was a photo that was could not be conclusively identified thirty years ago, but as she aged, our grandmother also was able to recall that the portrait was of Sarah (Green) Golomb- so there may be at least one advantage of aging, with long term memory improving. ;P
