Family Ancestry is a curious thing. Just like many of you, I’ve always been fascinated with the people that pre-seeded my parents. Sometimes when I am in conversation about this, my questions to them is ” Did you know your Great Grand parents?” The answer is sometimes yes and sometimes no. The fact of the matter is, we all strike a harmonic cord when it comes to seeking out family and heritage from past generations.
I have to tell you how I discovered scores and scores of new relatives when I attended my aunts furneral recently. I thought she was an inlaw , turns, out she is actually a distant relative on both sides of my family-A linkage that dates all the way back to Benjamin Rush and beyond.
