I wanted to say thank you to everyone for your help and also it was a great experience.

Another thing is I left a book at the exhibit in the room where the reception thing was. The books name is Charm! and the author is Kendall Hart. The book is I believe white with blue binding. It is a hard cover book and it is my mom's so I am freaking out. Please get back to me as soon as possible to let me know if you have found the book.

Opinions Anybody?

Thanks for the help. I am going to do the collage and try to put the pictures I have in a semi-chronological order or a more definite chronological order. I have a few pictures of him growing up and I was thinking of putting those around the area with the birth certificate and then putting the wedding pictures around the marriage certificate and then putting the divorce papers with a picture I have of him in jail. Can anyone tell me how they think this sounds? I have started this process already and I am not really far on it so I am hoping anyone can tell me now if they have a better idea.


I've gotten further in my project but I am getting frustrated and discouraged. I have lost the courage to continue in this project but it is too late to change now. So now what? I have pictures, a wedding certificate, divorce papers, and a birth certificate. I plan on putting these into like a collage with the wedding certificate, divorce papers, and birth certificate in the middle and the pictures in a somewhat chronological order. Can anyone give me their opinion about this or give me another idea? Thank-you

I have found all the pictures from my dad's wedding and i have their marriage certificate but i am stuck on what to do next. I have interviewed both my Aunt and his first wife. My mom won't let me interview his current wife!! so i don't know what to do now. Please give me some ideas on what to do with this information. Also if any one can help me find old newspaper articles from 1998 and 2003 that would be very helpful.
