genealogy

Thanks to my Oma, who had to prove to the Nazi government that my Opa was not Jewish, I have a substantial block of genealogical data for my Opa's family. Sadly, I don't have such information for my Oma's family. Because I lost it, to my shame: the only thing I've ever really regretted losing. Happily, I have quite a bit of information about my mother's family because her father compiled quite a lot of dates and names over the years. Some day I'll work out how to put this all online in a cogent fashion.

Here are some articles my family has unearthed during our genealogy research. The family names include Werneburg, Johnston, Hunte, Blott, MacKenzie, Mainzer, Fretz....

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

In the wake of 9/11, we [in America] have made the decision as a society that we can never again create something in which we can take pride, for fear that someone will destroy it. Moreover, we must suppress any trace of individualism, lest someone have the desire to rise above the bland sameness that protects us. I have, alas, no idea how to recapture our courage.
