Wednesday

Post by Poodle » Sun May 26, 2019 7:17 am

OK - on Wednesday, I will be showing an American family around their ancestral village (here, in other words).
a) Is there anything I should say?
b) Is there anything I shouldn't say?
c) Is there anything else?

My family name has villages so named all over the UK...........or maybe just Britain. I don't think much of "lineage."

"Yaaaa.......so........what have YOU done?"

The notion of "roots" is entirely Lamarckian BS.

Ask if they support a right to return... since King Trump has soiled their adopted home.

Funny you should mention this; my parents are currently in Sweden visiting my mom's family's farm. Her great grandmother moved from the farm to the United States and it's still in the family; I think passed son to son.

I forgot to report back. They were Californian and very pleasant - and they loved the church. And they were over the moon when I explained to them that the bit of the church they were looking at was exactly as it had been when their particular ancestor went AWOL. Very nice people - for Californians.

You have to remember that something built before WWII is "historical" in the US.

Joking aside - Our History Society has just received a rather handsome gift.

I think that's one of the words a dicktionary coughs up when you enter "Epstein".
