Did you know that the Doyon family has ties to a very famous cheese and that a Voigt ancestor ran a women’s prison in a converted castle? One of my ancestors almost didn’t make it to America because of a glove and on another journey, almost didn’t make it back to America because of a wall. There is one very brave ancestor on my father’s side who betrayed his own country and became an American patriot and more than a few independent women on my mother’s side who decided that motherhood was okay but being saddled with a husband – not so much. Interested? Stay tuned for more information coming soon, right here, where you can travel back in time to meet the people and visit the places that make up the tangled twigs and braided branches of my family tree.
