An Old Family Tree Sketch

My paternal grandmother, Ivy Regina (Mark) Brown drew this family tree on a piece of lined paper, date unknown. It may not be beautiful or answer all the questions I have but it was useful as a starting place for further research. I especially like the bottom box where she wrote, simply, "Me".

I love it. My father saved everything so he also had a hand written list. It helped me sort out the family.

I also found a list written by my German great grandmother (my theory) which listed the great grandparents and my grandfathers sisters dates of birth. It was in the old German Script but I managed to translate it. That helped enormously.
