While cleaning out some old boxes, we came across an old cassette. On the cassette, it said: Brooks Interview, written in my father's hand. My brother in-law, Lee Ray, transferred the cassette to a music file and cleaned it up a bit. Here is the interview.

I thought I'd try to put some of the family lore about my Grandma Marjorie here ... mostly so I won't forget it.

Marjorie Hawkins was born Feb. 23, 1910 in Bountiful Utah. She was born to a family descendent of Salt Lake City Mormon pioneers.

I've been spending the last several weeks rebuilding my family history database / site. I've had numerous unexplained issues with it and I thought, maybe it was time for a refresh.
