My heritage. My Family. Genealogy. Who I am. This catalogs a journey of discovery that goes backward in time, because sometimes you just want to know. 

Does who you were, who your family was, determine your identity, your path to the future? Each of us has to answer that question for ourselves. I think that how a person’s family handles ‘life’ is the example we are given, but it’s not the script we have to follow. 

I love following the genealogical tree backwards. I love seeing the names, finding the places, thinking about the times these ancestors inhabited- and perhaps imagining the choices they must have had to make. The best historical novels are the ones written in our genealogy.
