Bio

I AM A RETIRED TEACHER WITH A PASSION FOR HISTORY. I AM RESEARCHING MY ANCESTRY FOR TWO REASONS. FIRST, I WANT TO LEARN EVERYTHING THAT I CAN ABOUT ALL OF THE THREADS IN THE TAPESTRY THAT IS MY FAMILY. I CAN THEN TELL THE STORY TO THE FUTURE GENERATIONS. SECONDLY, I AM INTERESTED IN THE SOCIAL, ECONOMIC OR POLITICAL REASONS FOR FAMILY MEMBERS BECOMING ESTABLISHED IN CERTAIN AREAS OR MOVING AWAY TO OTHER LOCATIONS. I WANT TO KNOW HOW MY ANCESTORS WERE A PRODUCT OF THEIR TIME, OR HOW THEY WERE DIFFERENT TO OTHERS OF THEIR TIME OR PLACE. I ALSO WANT TO SEE HOW THEIR VALUES AND BELIEFS WERE PASSED ON. THE JOY IS AS MUCH IN THE SEARCH AS IN THE DISCOVERY. OF COURSE, IF YOU ARE READING THIS, YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT.
