How to Think of the Ancestors #genealogy


How to Think of the Ancestors

Colonial CoupleNeedless to say, that those who came before us were our people. Perhaps you found an extra generation further back, someone you had never heard of. Is it just a name with dates and places, or have you researched the true history of that person? If you locate some old photographs you probably noted family resemblances. Yes, we have their genes. But we also inherited certain facets of their personalities and accomplishments. An old letter could help discern more. And, history could disclose the choices they made during troubling times. How would you have handled the pain and sorrows of war? And who would you have been during the Victorian Era when good morals highlighted the order of the day?
