Pictured above at the top is me at the grave sites of Benajah Freeman (center) with his son Henry on right and Benajah's granddaughter, Cora Stevens, who is the daughter of Sarepta Freeman Stevens on the left. Another of his sons, Frederick, is buried nearby. Next is a picture of my Grandmother, Sarah Jane Freeman, and my Grandfather, John Wesley Heatherly. Below them is a picture of my Grandmother's Brother, "Fiddlin" Tom Freeman. "Fiddlin" Tom was a famous old time Alabama fiddler who was noted for fiddling for political candidates, including presidents and governors. It was said that he never fiddled for a losing candidate. His wife, Ida Pamela Williams and their children are also in the picture. Following that is a picture of my Great Grandfather, John Freeman. Immediately after that is Benjamin F. Freeman, Jr., brother to John Freeman, with his wife, Elizabeth Jane Harvel, and one of his sons.

I have used Family Origins as my Genealogy Program of choice for the last twelve years. Ten years ago it was licensed to Parsons Technology and continued to be updated by the FormalSoft team, who wrote the original program. Unfortunately Parsons Technology was bought out and they decided in 2003 to discontinue Family Origins. But lucky for me the original team has now released a replacement that has all the features of Family Origins and lots more. It also sells for a modest $29.
