Mark Twain once said, "Why waste your time and money looking up your family tree? Just go into politics and your opponents will do it for you."

That surely seems to be true on one line of my family tree these past few years. I was amazed, a little surprised, and really pleased to learn more about some of my own family history last week when the BBC dug up and ran it on TV. They also published a lengthy article on their internet site - an article that included some pictures and documents I didn't have.

What are the odds that something like this would fall into my lap while I am living in England??  I was so excited! I learned some things about my family that I hadn't known before - and I thought I knew a lot. Sure wish my mom was still here to share this with. She'd be so proud of her first cousin....
