There is something about searching for your ancestors that is both self-centered and selfless simultaneously. The search begins with yourself, but quickly becomes an endeavor of reaching out and connecting. Half-remembered names of relatives from your childhood may become fresh again and the aunt or uncle whose strange house you remember visiting at 6 years old will take on a new sense of reality. You may even find those memories stepping out the fog of years since then and a face actually appears in your mind. You may get to tell your mother about the grandparents she never met or knew anything about. Ultimately there comes another realization, both humbling and energizing, when you see all that occurred over hundreds of years to bring about each birth that carves yet another path in the history of your family. It is not at all what I expected to find.
