Surname Saturday

I seem to have a lot of brick walls I run into on my dad's side of my family tree. First he was adopted and I do have his real mom's side that was given to me from his Aunt Catherine Oswald. But his adopted father's side can be difficult as well.



Some have told me not to bother with my dad's adopted side because they aren't blood. But my Gramma Kub was a big influence on my life and as far as I am concerned she will always be my gramma. I feel both sides are important to the future ancestor's to come. So here's a surname I have been working on.
