And you're AWESOME too!You all are.Most of us want the same thing; to honor and as accurately as possible, memorialize our ancestors lives regardless of their origins. To do anything less, would certainly be a dishonor to our ancestors; both collectively and individually.
It's just nice to have a place where you can connect with others on same or similar paths and have civil, healthy, and respectful dialogue without all the background noise. It really helps to have objective feedback from outside researchers who have no vested stake in the matter, hidden agenda or involvement of pure self interest.
I've learned so much from all of you. As you know, I'm still on this learning curve and will be so glad when I get to the place where I am able to help others in the ways so many of you have assisted me.
However, all I have offer all of you are my deepest, most sincere thanks and gratitude for your kindness and generosity you've shown me. Oh yeah, definitely your patience.
I don't know how you all managed to put up with all my ridiculous questions, bad jokes, mispelled words, misplaced links, bad phrasing, brainstorming, clumsliness, etc. except to say, you must guided by the ancestors, and are immensely passionate and serious about this work and labor of love, to which many are called but few whom are actually chosen.
May this coming week bring each of you the answers to your most perplexing question, knock down that most stubborn brickwall, and that elusive ancestor found!
