Meet my new Aunt Cami! My Dad is a walking commerical for Ancestry.com my Dad has always had a lot of curiosity about finding his biological family, but everything he tried didn't pan out. Until now, within hours of getting his DNA results back he had found his sister, a cousin and more. Within days there were tearful meetings and within 2 weeks he knew the name of his mother. All this because he spit in a tube. Pretty freaking amazing! #Repost @jazzwife5 .

715. This number symbolizes the number of days it took me to find my birthfather using nothing but the distant cousin matches on Ancestry DNA. It symbolizes the number of days I spent researching, building trees, cold calling potential relatives and hoping they didn’t hang up on me. The number of days with the anxiety that I would never figure it out. This number symbolizes the hardest thing I have ever done in my life and one of my greatest accomplishments, regardless of the outcome.

“96.6% [Irish/British]
2.6% Middle Eastern/North African
.5% South Asian .2% Sub Saharan African...
And that's just my mom's version of the story..

Three of my four grandparents are first-generation Americans, and all three of them made their way from different boroughs of New York City to the same town on Long Island. Except this lady. She was born and raised in #nyack New York and met my grandfather during WWII upstate while he was working as an Italian translator at an American POW camp. Then he brought her back to this town - this same town where my three other grandparents settled. Ironically, we discover that it was THIS grandmother's ancestors that were some of the original settlers of our town, dating back to the 1600s. So it turns out my family hasn't just been in this town for four generations - but for hundreds of years. And we're still here! Pictured is my grandmother in the 1940s and my own daughter in the same spot in the same park in 2017.

My beautiful great grandmother, Mary Catherine Clancy (Kate) c1890. She died in Saskatchewan, Canada (in the freezing cold month of February), giving birth to her fourth child, a daughter named Bobbie, who was then raised by Kate’s sisters in Halifax. Bobbie went on to have 21 children! Wow! #ancestry #womensstories #herstory #family #grandmothers

My beautiful grandmother... so like you Talulah @talulahjames #angloindian #ancestry #thesoundmirror

May the stars carry your sadness away,
May the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
May hope forever wipe away your tears, and, above all,
May silence make you strong.

Hanging out in Haliburton where my great great great grandfather started the first lumber mill that ran through the village. #family #ancestry #ritchey

V is for Victory. After the armistice was signed, dad went to Hersfeld, Germany, in Headquarters Company, where he served as a clerk, and was promoted to Corporal. He truly felt his life had been spared due to divine intervention. One time during the war he walked right into a trip wire attached to an anti-personnel mine which was designed to pop up five feet above the ground and kill anyone within 20 feet. He thought, “How stupid, now I’m dead.” But nothing happened, and he was very happy to still be alive. Another time a shell landed very close to him, but didn’t explode. When asked what the hardest goal to achieve in his life was, he said, “To get out of the war in one piece.” When asked what the hardest transition was, he said, “To change from a peace loving schoolboy, to a kill or be killed machine gunner in Germany."

Inside of the many houses. It's a common sight to see the wallpaper peeling, or molding. The vent where the stoves would connect are now nests for pigeons, doves, and bats (whoever gets there first). Where meals once were eaten, where family's laughed, or cried over someone getting hung unjustly (just another Tuesday in Bannack), now sits an empty shell almost as if to show us how forgetful time can be.

Knock, Knock, anybody home?

There are of 90 buildings you can explore in Bannack. Houses, shops, saloons, churches, and they're all unlocked during summer and fall. This is the front porch of one of the houses. Shabby-Shique (if I spelt it right...?). One of the houses has electrical sockets in it. Pre WWI electric work. As the town was barely holding on before we entered the world war, gold mining came to a screeching hault. The school closed, then the store, and then that little house with the electric work hung on for just a while longer before becoming vacant itself.

The roadside grave of Findlay and Catherine McDonald. Lovely to know that they are lain there, looking out at the beautiful Rouchel Brook landscape. After years of knowing nothing about this family, I'm finally finding out more. Can't wait to receive information from my distant relatives! 😱

Upstairs, the wooden paneling is exposed as the many years of wear and tear (from no heat source during harsh winters, rain and flood damage too) have done their damage.
This is the upstairs but keep in mind the wind here is insane. The upstairs is supposedly haunted by the hotel owners daughter. She drowned across the street in the creek and it's often said she is seen wearing a blue dress with blonde braids.

The entrance of the Meade Hotel in Bannaxk, Montana is incredibly beautiful. The yellow paint is tattered on the walls though in many places the sheetrock has long been gone exposing the inner wooden paneling if the old structure. Will post another picture here shortly.

“Go out in the woods, go out. If you don’t go out into the woods nothing will ever happen and your life will never begin.” ~Clarissa Pinkola Estes~

As I was cutting apples Thursday, I found a powerful surge of energy pour over me as I noticed my hands. Hands that were not my hands but rather the hands of my great grandmother, whose name I received in baptismal water, Amada, Beloved. And my hands, her hands awoke in me the call. She was calling to me, my ancestors were calling for me to return home. .

And so I find myself yet again in the woods. The call is getting stronger and I’m starting to allow the attention I’m paying to activate my next moves. .

And yes I hear that it is time. Time to return to the land that has nourished my bloodline. To return to the soil that has painted my skin brown. To return to listening to my mountains and bird calls. To return to my hands knowing plants. .

And I see all my grandmothers and grandfathers in my living dreams. I see their hands forming earth into adobe homes. I see their hands intertwined with wild horse mane running through the sage. I see their hands being cut and stained red from picking champes. .

And maybe it’s not so much about returning to NM or CO but rather returning to earth herself. To the sacred place that is my home wherever I go. The place where I feel closest to God and to me. ✨

Spent the weekend doing some samhain prep 🎃 This is my first year with an ancestor altar and I have to say, it's super comforting having a specific space to sit and invite spirit in. This time of year always makes me wish I could go back in time and just watch the lives of those who came before me. I wonder what they had to endure and what serendipitous moments they celebrated all so the stars could align and I could be born. #nostalgic #familyisforever

My ancestors tried to kill each other. Monterrey, Nuevo León Mexico. August 9, 1672. Criminal case : Francisco Perez de Escamilla, Regidor of villa de Cerralvo vs Juan Baptista Villarreal. According to witness Diego Galvan: he left the house of Alonso Garcia and Leonor Valverde, there were two men engaged in sword combat. When he the witness went to go and have the two men make peace, he saw Regidor Francisco Perez Escamilla had fallen on the floor and had injuries to his head for he saw blood.” Juan Baptista Villarreal confessed The fighting but the injuries suffered by Regidor Francisco Perez de Escamilla was from rock that was thrown at him by Juan Baptista Villarreal’s nephew Nicolas Rodriguez. Nicolas confessed as well. Interestingly enough, Regidor Francisco Perez de Escamilla died shortly there after. Maybe the injury he suffered was more serious? #ancestry #genealogy #crime #mystery #monterrey #nuevoleón #mexicangenealogy
