Genealogy Roundup, July 10

Statue of Liberty Museum Opening – Hey, y’all, when Brian and I attended the opening for the new Statue of Liberty Museum, we hadn’t intended to make a video, but then we decided that we had to share the experience. We’ve worked hard with our friend Michael Mills to make this, so I hope you’ll enjoy and share it. Oprah’s remarks about the American dream are especially relevant these days. 🗽🙏

P.S. The kids singing at the beginning of the video? Either my sister or I are among them as it’s a recording done at one of the elementary schools we went to. I just can’t remember which one of us was in the grade that sang this particular song!

    I recently learned that one of my lines leads back to the Mayflower. I have been trying for thirty years to find the person who jumped the pond first. Growing up in Massachusetts I learned all about the great difficulties those first settlers of Plymouth endured but I never dreamed in a million years that I would have an ancestor who took such a chance. It really struck me hard and I am still coming to grips with this information. Thank you Megan Smolenyak, over the years you have been a great inspiration to me as I have learned my family history.
