Wife of v.p. finds her roots deeply entrenched in the LDS migration
While I was never in the Cheney's column in politics, I find Lynne Cheney's
endeavors to research and pass on knowledge of her ancestors very admirable. I
agree with her one hundred percent that it is such a treasure for the new
generations.I am a senior and like so many in my generation passed
up the opportunity to listen to what our elders were saying. Like Lynne, on
researching I found the most amazing history of ingenuity and
resourcefulness. I also found horrible stories of people in power decimating
the working class and I believe that still continues. Only in History will we
find an answer to our problems.On a romantic side, I found seafarers
where I thought there were farmers which actually explained a lot. On a strange side, I found forgotten names such as Honor, Mollie, Joanna etc.
given by relatives in recent generations, who had no way of knowing these were
past family names. Indeed they were not names found commonly even in their
original environment.Some scientists now believe we can inherit
traces of genetic memory along with physical characteristics. From my
experience I believe that is possible.
