Are You My Cousin?

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

My Photo
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

I tell the stories of my ancestors’ lives. Whether they lived 20 years ago or 200 years ago, they each have a story to tell. Some ancestors tell their stories willingly. Others must have their stories carefully teased from the records. Sometimes the stories are sad. Sometimes the stories are happy. Sometimes the stories are just funny. Regardless, my ancestors’ stories shaped their lives and the lives of those that followed. Come and share in the tales!

Now here's a subject I never thought I'd learn about when I embarked on my family history adventure. The subject of hogs. More specifically, how and why my farmer ancestors put rings in the noses of their hogs. Nose rings were used to keep the hogs from rooting up crops. The tool above (complete with box of nose rings) was used to place said rings in the porcine's nose.

The things I've discovered.
