This says it better than I can. For some of my ancestors, unfortunately, I may only ever have just facts and figures. For others, I’m trying to learn a bit more about their lives by reading books about where they came from.
It occurred to me last night, as I was once again wrapped up in trying to find the French connection to my family, who all seem Scottish or English, that my mother, Jacqueline Annette and my grandmother Arlene Lorraine have somewhat French sounding names. I just can’t find out where the connection is.
Mysteries upon mysteries.
