One never knows what they’ll discover about their past until they go digging.

Knock us over with a feather, you could.
I’ve also found Protestant French in 1690’s, two families. French! Nobody told us we were French. I have to speak more kindly about the French, now.

Family History: What people spend hours and hours digging up, and then even more time trying to bury. :)

My mother has been searching our family tree for about 15 years now. She had had some help by the fact that our family has some unusual last names. I’ll be damned is she went tracing one line and found out that we are the direct descendents of a Confederate Colonel. Got a picture of him in his uniform and on a horse and everything.

Fuck him, the slave raping bastard.

Well, the past is the past. I’ve got a copy of a will were another grandfather is handing out the “Negroes” left and right. They were included in the same amount of worth as a chest and a feather bed.
