THIS IS MY FAMILY, OR SHOULD I SAY “FAMILIES”.

AFTER ALL, THEY DO NOT CALL IT A “FAMILY TREE” FOR NOTHING. WE ALL START FROM ONE PERSON AND THEN BRANCH OUT INTO OUR INDIVIDUAL GROUPS.

MY DAD WAS A TURNER. HIS FAMILY BRANCHES OUT INTO THE BEATLEYS, THE CARPENTERS AND THE MENDENHALLS.

MY MOM WAS A MONGER. HER FAMILY BRANCHES OUT INTO THE HARPERS, THE HOUSES AND THE WEEKS.

WHILE RESEARCHING OUR ANCESTORS, WE FIND PEOPLE THAT WE MAY RESEMBLE, PEOPLE THAT WE MAY BE NAMED FOR. WE BEGIN TO WONDER WHERE THEY LIVED AND WHAT THEY DID FOR A LIVING. WE START TO LEARN ABOUT THEM AND FIND OUT THINGS WE NEVER KNEW.

I DISCOVERED THAT MY 7TH GREAT GRANDFATHER, CAPTAIN SAMUEL WEEKS, BUILT A BRICK HOME IN GREENLAND, NEW HAMPSHIRE THAT IS NOW A HISTORICAL LANDMARK. I DISCOVERED THAT MY UNCLE ROY TURNER, WHO WAS KILLED IN THE KOREAN WAR, WAS POSTHUMOUSLY GIVEN THE PURPLE HEART AND SEVERAL OTHER CITATIONS FOR SAVING SEVERAL OF HIS COMRADES DURING THE ATTACK WHERE HE WAS KILLED. I DISCOVERED THAT I AM THE 9TH COUSIN OF FORMER PRESIDENT BILL CLINTON.

A AM LOOKING FORWARD TO HEARING FROM ANYONE WHO HAS ANY INFORMATION ABOUT ANY OF MY ANCESTORS OR SEEKS INFORMATION.
