Welcome to Your Life and Times, a blog dedicated to the capture, preservation, and sharing of personal history and family memories.
My interest in personal and family history dates back to my early childhood and the little girl in the picture is largely responsible for it. That's my grandmother, Bernice Scott Christle, and the picture was taken in 1899 when she was 5 years old.
She had an ordinary childhood in an ordinary small town in the midwest and I couldn't be more fascinated. Join me as I share some of what I know about her, her life, and other of my ancestors and family members. Our families are more alike than not so my story, and her story, are much the same as the story of your life and times.
