Tales of Tanya

I get many e-mails and comments from my readers that they want to know more about me and my story. So starting this week I will blog once a week about me. My life past and present.
Tales of Tanya
My name is Tanya. I was born in Tacoma Washington. My family on my dad's side are Cherokee Indians and come mostly form Oklahoma. My mom's side comes from England many, many years ago. My great, great, great, great grandfather was a piano teacher and his wife was a music teacher.
My oldest living ancestor that I personally knew was my great grandmother who lived into her late 90's. She made hand painted porcelain items. I have many of her pieces in my home from plates to trinkets containers. All of them are very precious to me and my family.
My other great grandmother lived to her mid-90's. She lived in Bremerton, WA. She passed away when I was about 3-4 months pregnant with my son. In her house they found a baby quilt that she had hand quilted. Today it hangs in our nursery.
My grandparents had 7 children. Her first was given up for adoption. She found me via a genealogy site several years ago. We have kept in touch ever since. My grandmother will not talk about it which is her right. But I was glad to gain an aunt and uncle and a very talented cousin!
They moved quite often because my grandfather was in the Army. My grandmother stayed at home with the children. My mom is the second oldest child.
My mother and father married in October over 20 years ago. I was the first of two children. My mom said if she were to have had my brother first I may have never been born!
