Ancestry….edit

I enjoy the research, and for some reason, I can see, wonder how long that will last… I spent the last half hour looking at the family from Ireland…

According to DNA, we are mostly British/Irish and French/German…. and no matter how many times I research, we are related to royalty… a long line of it… some good, some not so great….

What I find interesting… the number of close family members, Uncles mainly… buried in foreign lands… dying during WWI & WWII…. Haven’t found any for Korea or Vietnam…

Finding their graves, getting a picture of it… makes me want to travel to those places…. and I think of the many men I know that have already died… all of them veterans… all of them suffering from depression… and the violence… oh my… the violence…. how do I know…

It was my dad and his brothers… all veterans, but one… and even he was violent… the depression left their parents wanting and those kids, my parents and uncles made sure the message was carried forward to their families… and the damage is so great… and the bigotry and hate so deep….

Ancestry can make you smile, but mostly, it reminds me of the suffering that came to be… before I was born and I am reminded daily….

Not even I can catch a break… Life is hard, it’s meant to be… that is how we learn and grow… as long as you don’t dummy your mind down with superstitions or religion….

Yep, this blog thing is a royal pain… no cursor, no view of my typing and I am having to use my old trick of when I typed court docs that had to be letter perfect… picture every word in my mind… did a 10,000 word document letter perfect for court… it was required to be letter perfect…MagCards have no way to correct and those were not fun machines…

Night folks… I am over this web site… I am enjoying playing on the ancestry web site… more fun than this…
