First, let me extend happy new year wishes to all of the members of the Knapp clan for 2012!
And a special prayer for Ben Knapp and his family as Ben begins the long road to recovery after suffering a cardiac arrest. Please keep Ben, Chip and the entire family in your prayers.
I also wanted to call your attention to a comment from another member of the TRARES clan who is interested in helping us connect the dots for the part of the family that migrated west to the Edwardsville, Illinois and St. Louis, Missouri areas.
Joan Louise Trares Genne is the great-granddaughter of Peter J. TRARES. To read her comment, please click this link.
This is one of the best things about creating this blog – it allows us to connect with other members of the extended KNAPP clan and share information. I am looking forward to hearing more from Joan and working together to fill in some of the knowledge gaps on our western TRARES family members.
I also am making a New Year’s resolution to get back on track with making regular postings to Knapp Notes. As many of you know, the past six months has been quite hectic, with family weddings and parental health issues. Hopefully, 2012 will allow me more time to spend on expanding and improving Knapp Notes.
Happy New Year and all my wishes for a wonderful 2012!
