James J Ruth, my grandfather in his World War 1 uniform. He died when I was 8 so my memories of him are alittle fuzzy.
I've started research my family tree. Went to a meeting given by the "Daughters of the American Revolution" to find out how to get started. I can go back 4 generations with the material I already know. There are a few blanks I'd like to fill in and generally want to know where my family came from.
I've been a big fan of the tv show "Who do you think you are" and decided to make a better effort to do this research this year. I like to research so this should be right up my alley.
Photo above is my paternal grandparents (Margaret and Stephen Powers) with my aunt and my dad as a boy.
