Ruth's Genealogy

“I don't know who my grandfather was; I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.” -Abraham Lincoln

I haven’t done much of any genealogy in a very long time. Just got totally burned out, I guess.

But in the past few weeks, the interest was beginning to creep back into my cobwebbed brain. I’m so sick and tired of politics and the situation in Washington DC… but I digress. I desperately need to get my mind on something else!

So this past week, I got to watching the new PBS American Experience series, The Great War. Excellent! But more importantly, for me at least, is that I can really connect to that time in American history. Many of my ancestors fought, and died in that war. I have collected many documents and newspaper articles, and especially photographs of these young men. Makes them very real to me.

“The game, Mrs. Hudson, is on!”
