I didn't mean to not blog for a few days but...... I've been busy.
I've been whoring around on ancestry.com.
I'm an extreme genealogy lover.
Love of history, of places, of the past and of family.
I get crazy giddy when I find a match or something new about the people who came before me.
On my mom's side, I can trace them from the plains...
(which cornfields don't excite me, but oh well)
all the way to the east coast.
I vomit heaps of love for all things east coast.
Anne of Green Gables?
Big huge farmsteads and country lanes?
Fall leaves and apple trees?
All my people, for many generations.
I have a small window of research time.
It's been interesting. Many old names like Ezekiel and Prudence.
Or Patience. We have one line, with the name quite similar to the movie-
Meet The Fockers.
But the complete 13 year old boy in me came out when I found out that my Meet The Focker family-
is from Weener, Germany.
I've got jokes for days.
So, I've got to get back, I have many more people to find and laughs to have.
I'm off to research Mary Magdalene...another relative of mine. Scandalous!
