Hello, and welcome!

This blog is an on-going tribute to my dad, Leslie Lowell Post, who passed away on February 4, 2015.

Leslie Lowell Post

2/25/1930 – 2/4/2015


My dad spent much of his life researching the Post family genealogy. In the process he amassed records on over fifty families directly related to the Post family and over 100 records on non-related families. The documentation is varied. From cemetery and birth records to pictures, historical accounts and memoirs.

I had been trying for years to get dad to write out what he wanted me to do with this, literal mountain of information when he died, but like most of us, he was too busy living to think about what to do with those things left behind.

I thought I knew what I was going to do with his research, but it seems that God has other plans.

These papers, records, booklets and pictures lined up snuggly against each other in boxes and pressed tightly together in file cabinets represent real people with hopes and dreams and histories. I am going to set them free on the pages of this blog for the benefit of all who may seek them.

I think Dad would be pleased to have his life’s work unveiled in this way.

And I guess it’s also my way of keeping him close.

Thank you for visiting,

Wendy {Post} English
