My Family Tree

Yesterday afternoon we went to my parents for our normal Sunday dinner, and our weekly visit so my parents could spend time with the boys.
The afternoon before, my aunt Maryann stopped by with a DVD of pictures (over an hour long) of my fathers family members. Both sides, the Michaud side, and the Soloman side of the family starting from his Grand parents, and going down to him and his siblings in pictures.

Along with the DVD of pictures was a full print out of our family tree. Something I have wanted to do since I was about 10 years old. I was FLOORED! I could not believe all the information I had wanted for over a decade was in front of me!Family is so important and knowing your heritage, and where you come from, and how you were shaped.

I never knew my Grandfather had 12 siblings!
I never knew my father was named after his Uncle Lou who was also his Godfather.
I never knew my Grandfathers middle name was Emile as my father's middle name is Emil and they left the e off. (Which is also Benjamin's middle name)I never thought Benjamin looked like anyone in our family, until I saw my fathers Aunt Marge.
I stand by the fact that Camden has some SERIOUS Michaud gene's in him!
So many neat pictures and just education on my fathers side of the family.
Just a couple pictures...

Uhhh, how does Benjamin not look like anyone in your family? He looks just like his brother ;).

I am talking about my side of the family, not immediate family.
My parents, aunts, grandparents, etc.

Then you should have said Camden and Benjamin don't look like anyone in your family ;). Because I'm telling you that boy is the spitting image of his brother ;).
