This has such a peaceful, yet wistful, feel to it. I loved the portrait you painted of Granny Root.

Ypu made me want to go hunting for information on the grandparents I never knew. Very nostalgic.
Very interesting. I always wondered how well Ancestry.com worked in regards to finding out out about family members.

It sounds like you have learned a lot about your family history. I would like to research mine someday. Thank you for sharing this.
I never knew my mother's parents, nor my father's father, but my memory of my Nanna is wonderful. You've done a good job here of creating longing and acceptance of the past. Great job.
