Family … Finding the Bricks in My History

It all started with realizing that my cousins and I were the head of the family now. Our grandparents are gone, and our parents and aunts and uncles were slowly dwindling away. Then, I realized, I really had no idea who my ancestors were. I have only a few memories of my paternal grandfather, he was very sick when I was little. I remember spending a lot of time with my paternal grandmother, but I never thought to ask her questions about her life growing up, or about her family. It never occurred to me that she had parents and siblings. What a concept!
