Today we Celebrate 241 years ago

What an amazing, incredible day that must have been 241 years ago. I love to study those times and reflect on what it must have been like for my ancestors. They might have stood in a town square as the words were read to the townspeople:

“ We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

These were rights that had drawn thousands and thousands of people to the shores of America. They were willing to face hostile savages, wild and unknown dangers and lands all for the ideals of freedom, liberty, adventure.

We enjoy those rights and liberties today thanks to those who were willing to risk it all to obtain them and protect them for us, their descendants.

Do you know the story of your ancestors? Do you know when, why and where they arrived on our shores? Have you honored them by joining a lineage society?

If not, make today the day! Barbara and I would be honored to help you in that journey.

Wanda and Barbara
