SENTIMENTAL SUNDAY: WHY I FOUND MY ANCESTORS A HOME(MY BLOG)

Since starting my Genealogy Journey in 2009 I have come a long way and one thing I know for sure is that there is no way to make true Connections without finding your Ancestors a home.

As you know I posted a letter that I plan to send to possible family members hopefully trying to make somekind of connection.
