I have quite a bit of interesting genealogical material that was handed down to me. It is kind of humbling to me to know about these giants on whos' shoulders we stand. I think we owe so much to them for helping to form this great country of ours which daily we have the choice to love, leave or change for the better. Anybody see huddled masses yearning to get out? Didn't think so. Patriotism is a virtue I think "Old Wolf" would still practice if he were alive today.
