Herbert Woodrow Tanner and Clara Odell Holland ~ Wordless Wednesday

Clara Odell Holland and Herbert Woodrow Tanner

Herbert Woodrow TANNER and Clara Odell HOLLAND were my paternal grandparents whom I discovered in 2018 at the age of 50. I had to take DNA tests through Ancestry and 23andMe to discover who my biological father was and these were his parents.

(The links for Ancestry and 23andMe above are my referral links. If you purchase a DNA test through my referral links, you get a discount and I get a gift card. Please note, that I think that if Ancestry is having a special sale it does not give you my additional discount, but I am not positive. Just watch for that. If that is the case, just go out and back in without using my link.)

I am usually found blogging, pinning, tweeting, and posting about homeschooling, genealogy, Parkinsonism, being Gluten-Free, books, recipes, and anything else on our family's Christian Journey...
