Are You My Cousin?: A Step Up?

Are You My Cousin?

Discovering My Ancestors -- One Cousin at a Time

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!

A Step Up?

Marblehead, MA Harbor

Walking along the historic streets (and cemeteries) in New England towns such as Concord and Salem, Massachusetts is a treat for someone who loves history.

I have no ancestors from New England, but I am still fascinated by those who walked these streets 400 years in the past.

Walking through these towns with teens has a way of keeping my genealogy and history interests in perspective.

I was admiring a lovely old building in Salem, MA when DD informed me the building was a home for "Aged Women".

DD: "Just for you, Mom."  (She said with a grin.)

Me: "What!"

DD: "Well, it's a step up from when we dropped  you off in the cemetery this morning!"

Ouch! That hurt!  :)
