On my husbands side of the family, I have found a Great-great-grandfather who was born just before and lived through the potato famine in Ireland. Then came to the San Francisco area, he lived a good life with many descendants.



Another interesting person was a German ancestor who served in the Civil War and had 15 children.

You will never know who you will find when you dig around.
