ANCESTRAL PERSONAL NOTES
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! For me it was a day, of really being thankful that I am here in this wonderful country!!!!
The reasoning behind my prior statement is, a part of my ancestry comes from the arrival of the Mayflower Pilgrims. I watched the documentary of the Pilgrims journey to this country from England. There wasn't any Hollywood embellishment in this. They had such a difficult journey, if not, alsmost impossible. It also took them a whole year at Plymouth MA to get established. During that year they lost approximately half of the original 102 Pilgrims!! It is truly amazing that almost half survived!! I almost cried for them - what they endurred - what they established in the name of FREEDOM IS REMARKABLE!!! What it is more remarkable, is that this testament to FREEDOM still stands today - 391 years later!!!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ONE AND ALL
