"To know who you are, you have to know where you came from." (Lionel Richie)
This last year has been a wonderful year for a number of reasons.
One of my most enjoyable experiences has been working on my Family History, and the discoveries I found.
I am grateful for a sweet angel named Sue, who has helped me so much.
For those of you who involved in genealogy, you know how addictive the quest becomes. I'm beginning to understand why some of my closest friends have just about put their quilting away, and now focus most of their time searching their roots.
Passion, adventure, joy, exhilaration, euphoria, elation, fervor, intoxication, devotion:
Family History has it all.
My most favorite show on T.V. right now is
Who Do You Think You Are? sponsored by Ancestry.com
And I've just discovered that the show can be watched on line for free anytime.
The most recent episode with Lionel Richie was very moving.
I wept as he learned of the the great sacrifices his family had made. "We are here because of their struggles." he said.
So true for each one of us.
Sunday is a great day to spend time learning more about your Family History.
