All of us who begin to search and then question, 'Why am I doing this?', have each come to realize it's because we must know it is a healing experience for me. Instead of reading history books about strangers, I am reading a history book about relatives who are the reason I am here. And it gets better than any book I read. I wonder about the work they performed to feed their famiies. How they stayed cool in the summmer and warm in the winter.What kind of house did they live in and how many rooms.Just what did their parents and grandparents look like. Would I recognize them if I was walking down the street. What type of hair do's my family ladies liked. It really gets deep for me the further back I am able to trace. So I just find it hard for family not to wonder about our history. We all do this for ourselves first. It heals.
