"Maybe I Don't Want You To Find Me"

My wife and I were having dinner with another couple tonight.  The conversation came around to talking about genealogy and our ancestors.  I was telling them about one of my "Brick Walls."  Our dinner guest said something that I have not thought about before.  "Well maybe the person doesn't want you to find them."    How many of you have had this same feeling before?


  1. Yes, this feeling is familiar. I often consider it a challenge. Perhaps I inherited persistence and stubbornness from these ancestors.

    1. Amy thanks for dropping by. Our living past and our ancestral past make us who we are today. Amy thank you for your encouragement and your friendship.

  2. I found that true a few times... twice because the person in question had run off with another women and started a second life...
