Maybe hitting the big five-oh (50) in 2003 was the instigator for renewed interest in recording, gathering and sharing as much family information as possible.

In our mobile society, it is a luxury for the immediate and extended family to be geographically close to one another like our ancestors, who often settled near the "home place." It has taken me 35 years to get back to the great State of Texas and be nearer my Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Sisters.

When my son Jamie died, the Sides name for my line will end when I am gone. My beautiful daughter Aundie will continue to bring joy to the world. I have an obligation to document as much of our family history as I can for my daughter Aundie and others having an interest in remembering the Sides family from Cherokee County, Texas. We can no longer use distance as an excuse for not saying close as most of us now have access to cheap cell phone minutes, email and social networks.

The fire at my mothers home not long before she died destroyed the documentation (photographs, yearbooks, clippings, bibles, and letters) most families have to chronicle their lives. I have have had to start from scratch to recreate the life stories of my immediate and extended family. With the help of relatives- both near and distant, I have been able to steadily add information and begin to pull document the family history.

If you have an interest in helping to fill in the blanks of our family tree or have information that validates or corrects my findings, please email or call me. I am particularly interested in family photos and anecdotes about our family and relatives. Also helpful would be copies of letters, old newspaper articles, yearbook pages or anything else that would give us more insight into the family.

In exchange, I will return your originals, share the fruit of our collaboration as it progresses so that you may enrich your own family tree.

This will be a continuous journey and if... after looking at the detailed family tree, you see where our ancestors were related, drop me a note. I am always looking for pictorial or other information to add to the ongoing storyboard. The goal should be to bring this all to life with stories and warm remembrances of those who were our ancestors for us and future generations to enjoy. I am looking forward to sharing this adventure with you.
