The Father's Day Tree

These photos were a hit last year, so I'm posting it again with a new photo at the end....  Last year I put all the photos into a Blurb book for my husband for a Father's Day gift, and the whole family enjoyed seeing the tree and the people change over the past 24 years.  If you want to see last year's post, which has almost alll the tree photos, please click on this link http://nutfieldgenealogy.blogspot.com/2010/06/fathers-day-tree.html

  1. What a wonderful set of photos! Thanks very much for sharing them. Our babies and trees do grow up, don't they? :)

  2. Excellent Father's Day post!

    (The first photo should say 1988, not 1998.)

  3. Great idea, if you stay in one place that long! Some of us didn't... (never did, rolling stones...)
    Thanks for sharing; a great set of photos for the family! ;-)

  4. Dr. Bill, my family has lived inside the same 100 mile circle for almost 400 years. Not always in the same house, or town, but close enough to visit trees planted, houses built, churches founded, or gravestones of all our ancestors. I guess I'm either lucky or we are all a bunch of "stick in the muds!"
