Genealogy is like trying to put together a jig-saw puzzle that is missing pieces and has no borders. One answer leads to three new questions. It is fascinating to learn bits and pieces about our ancestors. What were their lives like? Why did they immigrate to America? Where did they live? How did they earn their living? Knowing more about them gives us roots that reach back through time. It gives us a bond and an empathy with those people without whom we wouldn't be here.
