Someone commented to me this morning, that it is interesting that I feel such a pull towards Scotland when my last ancestor lived there in the late 1700s. Yes, it is interesting. I think some places echo down are subconscious mind more than others. I am not the first person to comment on this. I have been reading, yes again, of others who felt the pull to one place or another. I think Scotland calls a lot of us here in America. There are so many of Scottish descent here. We keep our heritage close through Clan communities, Highland Games, Burns Dinners, but the Mother Country still calls. Now, I know not all feel this, but there are those of us who sense an inner pull.
So much is passed down in our DNA. I’ve talked about this before. Is this where the pull comes from or is it the spirit or both. I can’t help pondering this. When I first started looking into my genealogy, I found out I had ancestors from Nova Scotia. Never felt the pull. I also have some English ancestors, no pull there. It is a specific location and I know once I go to Scotland, there will be a specific location within the country.
I can’t help but contemplate the mystery of our ancestry and how much it has impacted my life.
