We do now ask that all of you good people register as a member of our forum in order to see the sugar that is falling from our skies, so to speak.
Natonal Roots Day
It was this or National Pfeffernusse Day. I'm trying to cut down on sugar a bit, so I went with Roots Day.
FYI: National Roots Day encourages us to look into our heritage, families, family history, and ancestry. Collecting information about family roots is made easier when families are gathered together during the holiday season. It is entirely possible a grandparent, parent, aunt or uncle has already started a family tree and will share with other family members.
It is often interesting to learn about the lives of our ancestors; where they came from, their struggles, their accomplishments. It is a combination of everyone on the family tree that helps to make the person we are today.
Does anyone have interesting "ancestor" stories to share? My dad was born in Hawaii and his family came from the Portuguese Azore Islands. My mom was born in San Jose, CA and her family came from around Rome, Italy. They evidently knew the way to San Jose. My grandad on my mom's side was one of the workers on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. My uncles on my mom's side brought a friend home from a night of drinking and he needed a place to stay, so he stayed with them. He never left and lived with us for over 50 years. Weird, eh?
