I do enjoy this little long-term project, but not for personal gain. (Though there are rumors we descend from royalty – I’ll keep you posted on that one. Maybe I could shop at Walmart less often if that turns out to be true.) I’m doing it to share it with my children. None of them care right now, but someday I hope they will. Should our sons take after their dad and give it only a passing glance, perhaps at least our daughter will take after me and cherish the family tree I’ve built so far, and continue to expand it with whatever resources she’ll have access to someday. And then hopefully it’ll keep being passed along to future generations, who I may or may not meet, but who will know a little something about us.
