|This is the skeleton of one or more books that narrate the history of my family. It is a history of both the extraordinary and the common place, spanning more than a hundred years and enacted in lands far distant from each other, geographically and culturally. |
The ingredients of the story are predominantly my memories, as many of the people involved are now dead. The facts are corroborated whenever possible from named sources.
It is a story that should be told.
