|I found this deep dark family secret from Genealogy. This was my GGgrandfather.|
Who does Genealogy as a part-time hobby? Yeah me neither - it's a full-time hobby with me. Especially lately. It's terrible. I forget to eat, I don't want to do anything - I even dream about all my ancestors. It drives the husband crazy.
He planted 2 redwood trees in the backyard, in the rain. Laydee, our black lab, loved it. Me? I'm working on the family tree. I started a blog just so I could keep it all in order and share my thoughts. So if, something happens to me, it's all on a blog.
Rooted by Blood, DNA and a lot of BS
I figured I might as well share the BS stories, the family told throughout my growing up years. Now that I am finding out, there was no truth to them at all. Like, my grandfather was a wing walker and Grandma was a Cherokee and adopted by a white family. Oral family stories are not gospel truth - okay so if some in the family want to believe it, then that is on them, just don't keep spreading the LIE. Many in my family, want to live in denial. I'm not one of them.
Tomorrow evening, all the kids are coming over for dinner. Navy's girlfriend, I call her Sweetie but am changing that blog nickname to Nurse. Anyway, she is LDS and very into Genealogy and it just got me interested in it again - time to spring clean my tree. I learned in LDS, it is a holy ordinance to want to know about your ancestors. I'm not LDS but it's can't be bad, either. That is just me - I have an investigative, inquiring mind and I NEED to know.
Anyway, I am enjoying it - the weather is still wet and dreary.
