Who Do We Think We Are?






Working on my genealogy again. I've been away from it for a while and realize now that I really made a lot of family connections while I was at it but now I am not remembering the connections as clearly. My, gosh, it really is addicting..causes you to stay up very late especially if you keep finding more and more information. I made a lot of progress on Michael's side this past weekend...found old pictures of grandparents and great grandparents from other unknown relatives' family trees on Ancestry.com. I am sure that I am discovering relatives and pictures that our ancestors never knew existed. I can't emphasize how great that website is and what a boon it is to those of us who are on the road to know who we are and who we are from. The new television show.."Who Do You Think You Are?" is really getting people revved up. And besides it is so much fun solving mysteries in your family that relatives older than us never really talked about. I discovered wills and land owner documents...all kinds of interesting little tidbits to help define who we came from. It is helpful to track illness tendencies within families and we've discovered that many of our relatives lived to very old ages~kind of blows the life expectancy numbers out of the water. Well, back to more discoveries!

Yes! My friend was watching that show the other day and it totally drew me in! And suddenly I wanted to know all sorts of things about who I come from... I know almost nothing past my great-grandparents. Very fascinating. Thanks so much for your so very kind comment! Good luck with your discoveries!
