Dear Sister Bartholomew,
Thank you for the privilege of being able to do some initial research on your family history. It was so interesting to find the following documents to share with you:

 1900 Census listing for the family of George & Matilda Bowing in South Fork, Colorado. Notice how George was a carpenter and Matilda was at home with their three children. Have you ever been to South Fork? I think it would be fun to learn more about the town at that period of time.

 Death certificate for George and Matilda's infant son, Henry Bowing, in 1894. It looks like they had only been married a few years when this young boy was born and died just five months later. I can't begin to imagine how difficult that must have been for them.

 A listing from Relative Finder showing how you are related to three presidents of the United States and two kings of England!
It is such fun to research the lives of our ancestors and see how we are all interrelated to one another. If you would be interested in learning more about your family history, I would be delighted to work with you and teach you the basics of putting together your family tree. I serve at the Midvale Fort Union Multi-Stake Family History Center on Thursdays from 1 to 4 pm, but would be happy to meet with you there at another time as well. There are plenty of computers and resources there to help us.
I’ve also included an 8-1/2x11” black & white copy of your 7-generation fan chart as it currently exists on Family Search/Family Tree. When you come in to meet with me at our Center, I’ll be happy to print for you a 16x24” 9-generation color fan chart showing your known direct line ancestors and indicating the "holes" in your tree that you can begin to fill as you do a little more research on your family lines! The 9-generation fan chart is regularly $2, but we can offer you your first one for only $1!

Best wishes on your quest to learn more about your family's origins!
