While we were in Florida this weekend Aunt Ellie told me stories about her childhood, and my grandparents, and my great-grandparents. She also gave me copies of handwritten pages of Shallis family history. I’ve always wondered about my ancestry on my mom’s side but haven’t been able to find much on the different websites. Little did I know Aunt Ellie had asked my great-uncle all about his family before he passed. His history can be found in these pages, filled with names and dates and ports and movements. I know I can better know my place when I know the places of the generations before me.
