  1. My family has lived in and around Sebastian Texas for many generations, my sister had spent many years interviewing older relatives on family history. She had traced our origin to Spain ,sadly when she went into the nursing home her house was sold and all her research was destroyed. She has since passed leaving nothing of all family history she uncovered.I would love to see how the little she told me is in your documentation.

    1. It is crazy that nothing was preserved. That is why we encourage our members to preserve their research by publishing articles or family trees in our yearly journal.
