Ancestors

IMG_1255.JPG

I have not progressed very far in the ancestor search. I’m still where I was before and unfortunately, I don’t see it getting any better soon. I keep coming up with very interesting dead ends. I do now know that two of my lines that I can trace, were Loyalists that fled to Nova Scotia after the Revolutionary War. I have become somewhat interested in maybe researching the United Empire Loyalists for a possible novel.

The book I was reading about ancestral, genetic, DNA, memories didn’t keep my attention. I think I am looking for something that may or may not exist. I would like to know if anyone has had a memory and then found out it was something that happened to an ancestor of theirs. I am really curious about this.

I, personally, feel strong affinities towards things that I can’t explain very well. I can sense my connection to certain objects, songs, places and sometimes even a picture. I have had scenes pop into my head, seemingly out of nowhere. Now, I am also a writer working on a novel, so that could explain random scenes.

At times though, I know or I sense that it has something to do with an ancestor. I sometimes even ask them to be a bit clearer about it all. Lol. I’m laughing at myself but truly, I would like them, the ancestors to be a bit more blunt with me.

I have been busy the last few days keeping up with my Scottish Friends and all the stuff, don’t know what else to call it, going on over there. It has kept me glued to FB and Twitter as well as other means of communicating with them. I feel their disappointment in not gaining their independence. It saddens me.

Ok I need to get on to other things. As always, thanks for reading.

Hello. I am the author of the Historical Fiction novel called Mamie Garrison. It is a tale of slavery, abolition, romance and history, set in the years just prior to the Civil War. It is available on Kindle for .99 and on Kindle Unlimited; also in paperback. Mamie Garrison has a dual storyline. The present day story involves Bella and Andrew finding Mamie's journals. Their story includes romance and paranormal aspects. Mamie's story follows her adventures as an abolitionist through her journals. There are some mysteries as well as an unusual background in Mamie's life. I have completed book two in my series. Colin Garrison is available for preorder at Amazon.com/dp/B0759MYN81 and will be published on November 30th, 2017. Please see my Colin Garrison page under the menu option for a small sample of this new book. I am 60 and married with one adult child and one grandchild. I have always enjoyed the written word and have been a voracious reader from my early youth. I am inspired by many authors in the historical fiction genre. I am also a lover of Russian literature, particularly Tolstoy and Doestoyefsky. I find great inspiration for creating characters by looking at the ones these two authors have created. There is such a depth to them. I have written for most of my life in one form or another. I have dabbled in poetry and songwriting, and have more started novels than finished ones. In my free time, I like reading, history and travel. I am interested in genealogy and working on my family tree. I live in the Midwest United States with my husband, Chris and my dog, Max.
