Ancestry DNA provides the missing pieces to my family puzzle!

Disclaimer: This is a longer read than normal; but it’s a great one!

I’m going to go out on a limb here and just assume we’ve all worked a puzzle at some point in our lives.  Puzzles tend to range in size with as many or as few oddly shaped pieces imaginable.

Connecting smaller pieces together in order to create a larger masterpiece is the goal when working any puzzle.  Like most, I start with the border; because in fact, that’s the easiest part.

From there I begin to concentrate on certain areas of the puzzle and I begin filling in the center by gently pressing two pieces together.  I can sit in silence for hours focusing on matching one correct piece with another, and another, and another.  For weeks, one puzzle can consume most of my time.

My PSA to African Americans

My people, my people!!  I’m tired of shaking my head at you!!!

In the year of 2018, there is no need to have to solicit money via GoFundMe® accounts to fund relatives funerals. I am aware of the price tag that comes with a death of a family member but just in case you were not aware there’s this thing called LIFE INSURANCE. This is an essential for every person in your family. Not only is it an essential it is a necessity.

No person or family deserves the added stress of not being able to afford to bury a family member because a life insurance policy wasn’t in effect. And if a policy doesn’t exist collaborating amongst your family to get the money is better than begging for it through a third-party app or account.

Oh, another thing. Most jobs offer life insurance polices during your duration there. This really is the least that one could do.  Jobs with benefits are important.  I’m just saying.  It’s 2018.  It’s time for us to do better, collectively.

Don’t hate the messenger.  Hate the message and accept that the truth hurts sometimes. Besides a great person leaves an inheritance to his/her children’s children.
