|IF YOU COULD SEE YOUR ANCESTORS.|
If you could see your ancestors, all standing in a row, would you be proud of them, or don't you really know?Some strange discoveries are made in climbing family trees.Some of them, you know, do not particularly please.If you could see your ancestors, all standing in a row.There might be some of them, perhaps, you wouldn't care to know.But there's another question which requires a different view.If you could meet your ancestors, would they be proud of you?-anonymous-
I always loved history.What better history is there than that of our own.Where was our family when the Pilgrims landed or whenPoccahontas saved Captain Smith.When the constitution was written.Maybe a family member even signed it. Who crossed the country and when.
I would like to find these answers.
My brother and I started with the family bible. Only a handful of names and a few dates.
