I hope you’ve enjoyed your week. Mine had several highlights. For starters, we had a blast celebrating my birthday last week. Thank you all for the sweet messages, too!
I started doing genealogy recently and was able to trace several lines of my family back to the 1700s. I even found the names of some of my ancestors who emigrated from Europe. I even found a few surprises: I’ve always known my maternal grandmother was kin to the McCoys but I never knew my paternal grandmother was kin the the Hatfields. If you’re not familiar with the Hatfield-McCoy saga, I encourage you to check it out.
On another note, here are my great- great-great grandparents, Abel and Sarah Musick.
I’m finding genealogy to be fascinating but really time consuming. I’ll probably delve deeper into it this summer.
Do any of you do genealogy? I love history, so I’d love to chat about it sometime.
