Why so many of my ancestors were prone to doing nastybad things. I'm still enjoying my family genealogy hobby but the more I look, the more weird things I seem to find. confused

Some of it I wished I'd never found at first, but over time I've come to accept that what is, is.

Although the stories about my Grandfather getting into legal trouble were pretty entertaining to read. He really made some headlines back in the day...although his version of events were certainly a far cry from what really happened. My father had warned me that most of Grandpa's  stories of family history were either mostly bullcrap or complete bullcrap, especially from his perspective.

Turns out, he was right. roflroflrofl

Oh the stories I could tell you of what I learned after my mother passed O___O

It's quite astounding the secrets a family is capable of keeping. I discovered a grandmother I didn't know I had that was still living!

May you continue enjoying your journey, Icetooth!

I had to re-discover my extended family for reasons i still cant get out of my father. Came out to CA to find my great aunts and uncles were still alive out here, who then finally told me where our "Holt" is!

Its probably because he is an atheist, and they all are still your typical Central Floridians going to church and probably being kind of wild judging from my interactions with them. Their main business down there, besides working for Publix like my grandfather did, is hunting alligators - you call the Thomas Fish Co, if you have a regular 18ft Madcoil in your backyard.

My cousin who i mentioned is the only other nonbeliever in the family - hes gay, and he also suffers from the "Curse of the Red Light" - being able to see through all the BS that is modern American Christianity, and probably everything else.

As for my family history, my father side is the the only one with decent records. My third great grandfather founded Eagle Lake, and one of his predecessors founded Bremo, VA in colonial times. Not much is known of most of my moms family except for the Dobsons from Reading, England. One of them came here to LA in the 1920's when it first became popular in England.... "The Californiacs" was a popular book then. His descendants get to live in Morro Bay, apparently. I have literally no idea about the Swedes past my great grandmother or the Polish beyond the ones who came here with GGpa Jan.

They act more civilized than my fathers family probably because they never had to deal with the colonial wilderness. To them, my dads family may as well have been raised by wolves. Matches like this are probably why that ad for Geico exists.

Isn't it?

Though when my mom passed we had the problem of people suddenly ALL coming out of the woodwork wanting stuff. People who hadn't called in years, had never come out to visit. Not to just say "Sorry to hear she passed", nah, they wanted things.

And given the number of rootworkers we have on that branch, they got denied pretty flat out every time.

Very Happy Smile Very Happy

Secrets...oh yes...so many secrets it boggles the mind. I mentioned the half-Uncle in another post...he actually got in touch with my Aunt (the nastybad one) several years before we even knew he existed. And we only learned about him after my sister found a bunch of FB posts about my Aunt traveling with "her wonderful brother" and we were like...WTF...she only had just one brother (our father) and he's been dead for 15 years! None of us believed it at first...but some time later he did a DNA test and sure enough, he was indeed my Grandfather's son.

Then his wife reached out to us...all luvy-duvy like...and somehow knew all about us. She wanted us to be one big happy family and my siblings and I were like...umm...no.  No  No  No

We all heard the stories growing up about my Grandfather having one or more bastard children that had popped up here and there. My mother had told me that another one (a young lady) showed up at a wedding years ago and bore a striking resemblance to our family. Who knows how many are really out there...that "legal trouble" I spoke of involved yet another woman my Grandfather had dishonored and abandoned...but this one took his ass to court, and won.  Laughing

But this "Uncle" or whoever he is...he had all the time in the world to get to know us before bonding with my horrible Aunt. If he only knew the things she's done...but that's on him to find out the hard way. On one hand it is kind of cool to know that my late father has a half brother, but on the other, I don't want anything to do with him. He had an opportunity to get to know us when he first learned of the connection, but he didn't. He isn't part of our family, no matter what that test says. Suspect Suspect Suspect

Wow...a Grandmother that was still living? Now that's quite a find...did you ever get in touch with her? I love you

Oh yes! I sure did and she lives right in my area too! I've also earned 3 more uncles and an aunt and their families.

Not going to lie, its extremely awkward. I don't call as often as I should because when I do, eventually the conversation reverts back to the past and my grandmother gets upset. I know the past has nothing to do with me, nor is my fault, but I tend to feel bad because talking to me seems to bring it all back to her.

So we're still working around that. It's only been a year, but there's a whole lot to make up for I love you

That's a wonderful story Kin, awkwardness and all. I wish you and your new family the best. Hug

After all the family research lately, I think I may have located some cousins that live about two hours away from me. Part of me wants to reach out to them...but a much bigger part is concerned with bothering them and/or having expectations of them wanting to connect in return.

If I can confirm that they are relatives, then hopefully I can gather up the courage to reach out. Embarassed

I’d like to reach out to mine further but they sadly wouldn’t really understand me I think.

I'm adopted, so my family has occasionally needled me to go hunting after my genetic family. But... my adoptive family is enough of a handful! I don't need two sets! Though given what I know of them and where they're at, there's actually a really good chance both are related. Down to the fact that I actually look like my adoptive family a lot. Birth mother and her family are from the same smallish town as my adoptive dad's side of the family.

I have decided to give up smoking for the umpteenth time. I have tried before and made it last no longer than 18 hours as I turned into a rabid animal after 12 hrs. Wish me luck, Wednesday will be the day and I need a morphogenetic field to make it work.

And I wish we could have our edit function back so I won't have to ponder on my posts as much trying to avoid typos.

I'll still wallow in smoked almonds but I'll have to refrain from posting else you get a predator owl on speed.

Ah yes, Japan, they also have another island full of cats. I had no idea Japan had any sort of climate capable of supporting palms.
