I have always liked reading and studying
When we travel or move to a
new place, I like to find out the
History of the area and people.
We traveled to Baltimore for the first
time earlier this month. We visited
the Civil War Museum in the
Inner Harbor area.
It is housed in a restored Train Depot.
The museum is quite small...just the first
floor of the building...but has some
wonderful displays and information.
Imagine living through a war,
right in the area you live....
Here in Utah, we just celebrated
Pioneer Day...July 24...the day
the first Pioneers came into the
Salt Lake Valley.
The pioneers started in the Eastern part
of the USA, some coming from
Europe, and crossed the country,
pushing hand carts or traveling
Both my parents had ancestors who
crossed the plains, settling in
Utah and Idaho
(and eventually California)
We are lucky to have a journal
from a Great Great Grandfather
describing his travels from England.
I also like to research Family
History or Genealogy.
I am an adopted person and
have meet some of my biological
people over the last 20 years.
They have shared the names
and vital info about their
ancestors and some of their
history with me.
This is Esther,
my paternal Grandmother.
She raised a family of 5 children
on a small plot of land in
Western New York state.
This is my daughter.
She is raising her family on
a small plot of land in Utah.
I love seeing the physical
features they share, passed
down through Time.
I like History!
