... but of course... My mother called this morning and when I asked what their travel plans are for THIS year she replied: "We've been thinking of going to England and see the place where my Grandmother lived. We're Welsh." I find this an interesting venture on her part. Her side of the family is part French, part Welsh, and the rest Heugenot (Pennsylvania Dutch) and German? I really don't know. I'm a mutt. My dad's side of the family has roots in Spain (on the European side and not Morroccan...) I told my mom to delve more into the family geneology when she gets to England. Ahhhhh trees!

Whereabouts in Wales, of course is the first question that springs to mind...but I suspect either a) You wouldn't know; Wales is, after all, about 10,000 miles away - a land of slate and sheep that you have barely ever considered, let alone got to know1 or b) I wouldn't know. We did travel through Wales on our round Britain jaunt, but I can't pretend to know it that well. As a welcome coherent point, its odd that you would have such a varied fanily background - (how can I put this without offending anyone?) - especially from all around European countries. They are difficult to change, especially when the languages are so very different.
I'm lost with where I was going. Ah, I know. I was wondering whether there were some interesting characters to accompany the interesting geneology. Trees indeed....
