"Adopted Ancestors" (Jul 5, 2022)

I have a soft spot for certain family members in my tree. They're the ones that no one seems to know anything about. They probably never married. No kids. No descendants to look them up and learn about them generations down the line. All too often even genealogists who might list them for completion's sake, don't really do the due diligence they might to someone with children who might lead them to a living distant cousin. I can't say the reason, or perhaps it just seems that way to me. In any case, I try a little bit harder to find out about these relatives. They were people and deserve to be remembered. I have started calling them my Adopted Ancestors. They're not really my direct ancestors, but I try to honor them the same way.
