The Clemstead

A place heavy with history and screaming for new thoughts.

When traditions crumble

Once again a part of our family will not be with us. For one reason or another (Does it really matter why?) we will not spend time together at Christmas. The old standby of Topol singing "Tradition" fades to the back of the mind and hearts.

On the other hand, with technology the way it is are we so far apart?
On the other hand, will we all be so busy to update or even read what has been placed for our loved ones? On the other hand, who else will do this if not the family as a whole?

Sob story?? Not really. Just the harsh realization that life goes on, family moves on and we all need to adjust. So here I am adjusting....adjust with me.

About Me

My photo
I come from German (Mennonite/Brethren) stock with bits of Norse, Celtic, Native American, and some mysterious unknown combination from an adopted grandparent. Not an uncommon blend for most of us who settled early in Pennsylvania. This type of diverse heritage left me ripe for the genealogical bug. I make a pilgrimage once a month and attempt to trace all the branches of my family tree. Unearthing facts that were never documented previously always brings excitement.
