We went to a program at my sisters church on our family heritage
i konw for some this sounds dry -but I thoroughly enjoyed myself
this flag shows a family tree w/ two little apples in (totally appropriate)Kerchief material representing the couple here in TX away from the rest of the family.
there was a family Parade to start to include the children understanding where some of there relatives came from
there was some live music then a short Program this man did a dramatic/comedic presentation on his great grandfather who married his bride very young and traveled to America from Mexico
This is the geneolgy he has unearthed so far
This energetic cutiehad a ancestor that used to
perform during intermissions of silent movies so
she did a Charleston for us to remember her
My sister has done so much Family History that we have learned we are way more German than we thought
her husbands heritage is Puerto Rican
She did an awesome dramatic performance that took us back to the time just before, during, and after our Grandfathers Grandmother came by ship from Europe to America- She had the accent down so well-I think she belongs to the part of our family that got the acting gene. I was moved to tears as she asked in character if anyone would remember her as she came from the familiar into this unknown country of hope- AMERICA!
the evening conclude w/ the events coordinator also doing a moving presentation of her ancestor who had to bury over half her children in her lifetime
