A while back, my dad came up for a visit, and he brought with him the book, The Sommerer Family that many of you probably saw at the family reunion some years ago. He spent more or less equal amounts of time looking through it and complaining about it while he was here.
It doesn’t actually have a whole lot of information about our side of the family (roughly a dozen pages out of 250). Most of it is about Uncle Ralph’s side of the family. But there was enough information for me to get a little interested and to sign up at ancestry.com for a month.
