Christmas Traditions, anyone?
We had one tradition from my mother's side. Every year she would make this fruitcake from an old recipe. She told me once that it had been handed down for several generations in her family (probably the Guytons). It was the best fruitcake I had ever eaten. Not like the dry, nasty doorstop fruitcakes you get in the store. She even had an old wooden mixing bowl that had been passed down from her grandmother. Unfortunately, the bowl and the recipe have been lost; but the memory remains. Does anyone have any family traditions that have been passed down through your family line?

I'm also researching Guyton, Cole, McAlister lines. Just starting on the GUINTY, SNODGRASS, PIPER line on my father's line. My ancestors came from England, Ireland, Scotland. They settled in Massachussetts, Kansas, Mississippi, Virginia, North Carolina. I have also been researching the Manning line on my fathers side. The Sanders line is nearly complete, exept the large wall between William Aaron and his ancestors (Thanks to DNA evidence disproving a large part of my work, and the work of others!). Would love to hear from any distant cousins I have out there!
