You know what is sad? Its when you don't have any family members still alive who might know the answers to your family questions. I signed up , as a birthday present to myself, with a DNA service. I know that my family came from Eastern Europe, but who knows, I might find some long lost relative or find that we are members of the Czar's family.(Not likely). I went online and found that my Mother, Father, sister and Me,  were included in a 1940 census.. in New York. I was 5 and my sister 12, my Mother 17 years younger than my Father. Question One... what were we doing living in N.Y.? and question Two.. why do I not have any,any memory of the trip there, being there, or returning to N.O.???I have no one to ask these questions to.My sister long ago had remarked that maybe I don't remember these things is because I blocked them out. Now I want to know why. The mystery continues with my family. Anyone out there knows?? You can reach me via FB.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
