Tammy Bogle

My father gave me the greatest gift that can never be taken away. I spent countless hours talking with my Dad about history and our family throughout my life. He was always interested in our ancestry and that inspired me to dig deeper. My Dad's fascination with this led to my gift of inspiration in preserving my family's heritage. That is the most valuable, precious gift because no one can ever take this away. I was honored to share the discoveries I made with him. It was a great feeling to erase the "heinz 57"!!!
