We each go on many journeys during our lifetime and some are more noteworthy than others. One of the most important journeys I’ve taken, connected me with my ancestral family. This journey began in the early 1980s and continues to this day. It started as a way to assuage my seemingly endless curiosity about my grandmother who died when I was very young. No one would tell me her story, and I wanted to know her. My dad and I began an adventure to discover what seemed to be lost forever. During this journey I discovered the fate of my family in Europe and surprisingly met relatives who still remain in my ancestral home.
