Family Trees Added!

I’ve finally figured out a way to display our family trees on this site. Granted, it’s not exactly what I’d like, but I’m getting closer!

On the bar at the top of the screen, you’ll see links to “Overview“, “Richards Family Tree“, “Coy Family Tree“, “Skibo Family Tree” and “Farkas Family Tree”. If you click the title, it will bring you to that specific family tree page. On this page there is a 180 Degree Fan chart of the family, going back anywhere from 1 to 4 generations. Some family trees go back further then 4 generations and I’ll add those at a later date.

My goal is to have pages for each person in a family tree and share their story. I’m starting with John George Skibo and hope to have it posted later this month. In addition, on the person pages, I’ll have information about those not in our direct line, listing out siblings and other relatives.

These fan charts really help to see where the gaps are (clearly on the Skibo/Farkas side! – sorry Grandma…) and what information I have yet to find. Also, they just look really cool!


In the Beginning…

I have a suspicion that when I start talking about family history and genealogy, most people can relate to the woman in the picture above. So instead of bombarding you with every brilliant and interesting tidbit I find, I decided to jump into the 21st century (14 years late…) and share it all through this blog. That way those who enjoy it can jump into the experience with me, and those that aren’t quite as interested, can peruse at their leisure.

The focus of this blog, “Leafing Through the Past”, is to bring together information about my family – the Richards. And the Skibos. And the Coys, And the Farkas’. But recently we had some pretty awesome additions to our family, so I also want to include the Minteers, Fords, Eisenhoods, Baumunks, and any other new branches I discover in this ever growing family tree.

So sit back, let me do all the work, and enjoy the ride!
