I never thought much about it until a cousin on my mother's side of the family started to compile a history of all the relatives. It was her
questions that started me searching for the answers to the questions she had.
It was interesting to find the long history of military service in the family. I come from a long line of men that worked in the sciences, and that
sort of explains the geneticists and biologists that I have in my family.
I found out my grandmother on my father's side was a Man.
Born on the Isle of Man.........
I also realized that artistic expression is a genetic trait that runs through most members of my father's branch of the family. Some of them have
been extremely creative over the history of our family. As for myself, I appreciate art, but do very little to create it.
One blessing/or curse, most members in my clan have very high IQs.
Some went insane, and yet others went on to create amazing things and advance mankind's knowledge of the world.
One uncle changed the way we feed the world, another has made advances in medicine that have changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
I don't want to be too specific about who I am. but I'm very proud of my heritage.
