Learning New Things About Your Family History

You know learning about your history gives you the feeling that you can trace your roots. In researching my history I have found many things that make-up the way that I am today. I love writing because I get to voice my opinions about a variety of things that happens in my life, in the world or what ever I would like to voice my opinion about. A couple of years ago I decided to start a family tree to keep track of my family, and retrace the roots of where we came from. What I found was interesting enough and I will continue to add information to my family tree. So below I have outlined some of the things that I have found in my family history:
