Where Did I Come From?

I had every intention of writing and publishing a couple of new stories this week, but when I started researching a question for a story some how I ended up looking something up on Ancestry.com and I have been completely sucked into it, spending most of last Sunday just looking around.

Wow, so much interesting information. And, one of my grandmother’s relatives has done a huge amount of work on that part of the family tree. She had posted pictures of family, places they lived or had gotten married and filled in several generations of family  – it was so cool!

  • My Great, Great Grandfather George came through Ellis Island in 1907
  • My Great Grandmother Kate had like 10 brothers and sisters
  • My fathers mother was married once before she married my grandfather
  • My Grandma Jean’s father passes away in Texas and never had any other children with his second wife.

Now I have to check in with one of my great aunts that is still with us and get some more details on my Dad’s side of the family.

Sorry for my distraction, but it can really capture your attention.

    • It it pretty interesting stuff ~ I so wish I had asked more questions when I was younger. But it is also a little bit like a puzzle and a treasure hunt too and I can’t resist either! 🙂
