Today I learned that genealogy isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. Literally, I’m still recovering from the rain, thunder, and lightning. After such an incredibly successful visit to Bijacovce where my maternal ancestors came from, we decided to check out a village on the other side of the family.
So for those of you who don’t know, Who Do You Think You Are is a TV show where celebrities meet up with genealogists to find out about their family history, and then usually travel to the place where they’re from to see how their ancestors lived. I’m not a celebrity, so I’m not eligible for the show, but luckily I don’t need a fancy show to learn about my family history; my grandma has been ahead of the game for years, and has an incredibly organized and complete set of research done on our ancestors.
