My family came to America from England before the Mayflower. I have French roots among others.

I did have three relatives on that little ship however.

My wife has traced my family line far back into the distant past.

My mother’s mother was a Danials and her father was a Hand. We were once Catholic in England and had to leave due to circumstances beyond our control.

My family on the Danials side married well and prospered.

They have many royal connections.

Sadly, I have neither the power or the wealth of my ancestors.

You know many of my distant ancestors whom I have just found out about. I will tell my tale in a few weeks.

I will finish up the Hawaiian Islands and then move on to my roots.

You may find it interesting and discover that we also might be related. My apologies.

I am now on Facebook at R.C. Hand.
