I really enjoyed reading this book and thought I would pass it on.
Leslie Albrecht Huber's ancestors were journey takers, leaving their homes in Germany, Sweden, and England behind to sail to the US and start new lives here. Huber sets out to trace these journeys and to understand her family - who they were and what mattered to them. As she follows in their footsteps, walking the paths they walked and looking over the land they farmed, she finds herself on a journey she hadn't expected. Based on thousands of hours of research, Huber recreates the immigration experience in a way that captures both its sweeping historical breadth and its intimately personal consequences.
Hello,for the past few years I have been working on my family tree. Just when I think I am done I find something new to investigate. I not only wanted to create a family tree but I wanted to put together a family history album. I had old birth certificates, marriage records, photographs, etc. Well by the time I was done my album was about 5 in thick!
