I’m humbled and overwhelmed with the results and impact of the Everett Herald story of my West and Knapp Families in Snohomish County, Washington. I’ve a long list of people to email and call and I’m slowly going through the list. Everyone is so excited, as am I, so our conversations are going for an hour rather than a few minutes. I’m doing my best to get through the list as fast as I can. Thank you all for your patience. I want to talk to each and every one of you.
I’ve heard from so many with information on the photographs, the Tulalip Tribe wishing to know more about the images we have of our Native American family members from that area, from potential cousins and relatives, and those who knew our family. Friends are calling and people are sending me copies – it’s amazing!
Truly, this is an incredible and humbling experience and I’m treasuring every moment and chance to uncover more details on my family.
Expect to hear some interesting stories about all these discoveries over the next few months as I dig up what treasures are found.
Thank you again to everyone waiting patiently for me to respond. You’re turn is coming!
