- Ancestors are interesting

Well it's been a while since my last post, the last week has been busy/fun/different/interesting for me. I don't have time for a long involved post as I need to get back to work, but my mom just e-mailed this to me the other day and I wanted to share.

When you start digging into your family history, you never know what you're going to find, good/bad/inbetween. I found this to be interesting. Apparently, my maternal great-grandmother's great-uncle was a congressman, and her grandfather ran an underground railroad. So that would make him my 3 times great-grandpa.

Family stories mentioned the underground railroad, but this info confirmed it, which is really kinda cool.

Who knows what we'll find next.....
