Joseph O'Dell continued....
sorry to drop all of you like that for the last couple of days. But Xmas preparations got pretty hectic around here. I hope all of you had a great Christmas!!
anyway...onto Joseph O'Dell...
so after hearing about him at the family reunion, something inside of me clicked! I HAD to find this man! I had no idea how or where to start. My Aunt gave me a little tree that someone unknown had done and that is about all I had to start with. So with the family tree that I was given I headed for the computer. After doing a lot of reading about how to start in genealogy I headed for the IGI. With the tree I had and knowing what area I was looking for I did find some names and dates and was able to piece together a bit more of my tree. But I found no traces of Joseph! I searched and searched, I went down to my local LDS center, and got NOTHING! Yes, I was one frustrated woman! I was finding all sorts of ancestors that I had never heard of, but could not find Joseph. About two months after the start of my love for genealogy, I came across a name that was searching for Odell's in the exact area that I was looking!! This is how I met my cousin Linda!!!
the saga continues tomorrow!!!!!!!!!
let me mention though, that my first contest is going real well! I have 41 people entered already!!! So make sure you get your name to me!!!
