The Letter is A for Ancestors
Each has his own tree of ancestors but at
the top of all sits Probably Aboreal.
Robert Louis Stevenson
At the turn of the century I was bitten very hard by the
Genealogical Bug and I spent a few years
enthralled with my Ancestors
who, I discovered, came from many different places.
Scotland, Ireland, Holland, Germany, England
and a whole great contingent of Loyalists
from New York State.
It's great fun to compare ears and eyes and noses
and see who looks like great grandfather,
or the aunts with the hats.....
