What if my husband never took the “leap” and moved to the USA? Our sweet boys wouldn’t be here today. What if my great-great-great-great grandparents hadn’t gotten together? None of their progeny, now counting in the hundreds, wouldn’t be alive today. It’s mind-blowing.
It’s also one of the main reasons why I find genealogy so intriguing. It’s a miracle any of us are alive today! Our ancestors may have been great people, regular folk, or had a more sordid past, but had they not made the choices they made, we wouldn’t be here now. We honor them by preserving and sharing their stories.
Join me as I search through my own family tree (spanning the USA present day, to Sweden, Ireland, England, Germany and who knows where else), massaging out stories and interesting characters, as well as the tree of my husband’s side in Mexico – with a smattering of bi-cultural observations along the way.
