“Dear Progeny.” Perhaps that would’ve been a better blog title because the current one hints at lofty content. The truth is, I have no lofty advice or memories to share, but I will share myself and what I know about our family so that many years from now, you may know what one of your grandmothers was like and that she wanted to help connect you with your roots as you develop your wings.
I wish I had that experience with one of my ancestors. Of course I didn’t care with much passion until I turned 50, so it may take you a while to care. Or you may never care. Or you may need some info for a school project. Or you may feel a pointed need to know as much as you can regarding who and where you come from. I would be happy to assist in that endeavor. *Note: I do not always speak like Charles Dickens. I happen to be reading David Copperfield right now, so that is why my writing voice is weird. I do not actually speak Victorian English.*
So here I begin, in the year of our Lord, 2015 (sorry) with a project I’ve been thinking about for quite some time: Saving Our Story, one little blog post at a time.
