My Sister's Family Tree Assignment Circa 1980s - Part 1

One of the odd, unsourced, unscientific, unstrucutured, and maybe even other "un's" is this family tree that my sister drew on paper by hand circa 1980s.  She took a ruler and drew horizontal, vertical, and diagonal lines to connect names and people of our family lines.  It is rather crude for an official family tree but is a wonderful peice of art.  I need to scan this rather large page before it is destroyed by time.

I also use this page regularly as my quick reference to my family tree.  There are no dates or locations on it but there are names.  In my recent research, I have found that some names are missing or mispelled.  This document is an excellent high level review of my (and my sister's) family tree.  I am compelled to at least write down what is on this tree with spelling and all.  I am omitting living relatives, however.  I will work from past to present which is from top down when you look at the tree.

All of the above part of my tree is for my mother's side of the family.  They are from Napa, CA.  I call them my "Napa Family".
