I love genealogy! It's like a huge puzzle. I have zero connections to VA, but much of my tree is deeply rooted in Massachusetts and I love knowing that my ancestors had a hand in forming this great nation.

But, as John Adams said, "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." Sadly, we are rapidly becoming the "other" of which he spoke.

When I get some time, I may freepmail a list of some of my New England ancestral surnames from my tree and my husband's. (He is descended from the Mayflower's John Alden.) Could be a connection somewhere. Never know.

I’d love that.

No promises when I can get back to it though. I have to be careful or I’ll burn whole days digging into this stuff. :-)
