Every July 4th, or the first Sunday in July, the Staub family holds a reunion. This year nearly 287 people signed up to attend. I think that five generations are represented.
The family matriarch, my husband's grandmother, died in 1986. Since then all of his uncles and aunts have passed on. This leaves my husband's generation to carry on the tradition of the annual Staub reunion.
So why am I writing about this? It has been decided that our immediate family - my husband's brothers and sisters with their children and grandchildren - will hold its first reunion beginning in a few weeks. Usually I don't get excited about reunions, mostly because my family didn't get together unless someone died. No kidding!
I am excited because I can share my research with everyone (well, anyone who cares to listen), and hopefully get some of them excited enough to help with doing some of the research. My ultimate goal is to seek out potential heirs to one day pick up where I left off. I already have three possibilities; my son and his two cousins are all history majors, my son being the history teacher. Someone, I hope, will assume this research when I no longer can.
So, in a few weeks I will share with you the results of our 'new' family reunion.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
