Tika & Grandma Kay
Tika was delighted and barked excitedly as we pulled into the driveway. She was going to visit Grandma Kay! Kay is our dog sitter and bless her heart she is a jewel and a gem and we know Tika will be further spoiled when we retrieve her.
So what genealogy is here? Easy and obvious. Don't most families have a "Grandma Kay" or "Uncle Bud" or some person that is not really blood-family but who is so much a part of your family and they are always included? And how do you deal with such person-connections in compiling your family history?
If I know of such a dear and good family friend, I always include information about them in the stories that I write up about the family. I would hope that you do too. Sometimes the "Grandma Kays" of this world are just as dear as Grandmother Kay.
