Throughout my childhood I was a bit confused and jealous whenever a person especially a young person commented (bragged) about his or her ancestors... and because I lived in Massachusetts... the comment that got my attention was "my ancestor was on the Mayflower". Growing up my 'top 10 list' of things to do was find out somehow... my roots... where did my great grandparents come from and why did they move\ migrate to? I didn't really know the story of my grandparents... I thought my family was VERY small... cousins and all! I was so wrong.
