In this blog, I hope to write some of my thoughts about my ancestors and the importance of knowing where we came from and remembering that we stand on the shoulders of those who went before us. I have found quite a lot of information about my ancestors, such as where they originated from, Scotland. I have also learned a bit about who they were as people. I feel a connection to them. I feel a longing for places I’ve never been. Some call it genetic memory and maybe it is. I am just starting here and will write more later.
