Default Be very careful.

You may not want to know who these people were .
Like an SS Major hiding in the closet somewhere ,who served in N.Africa. Then in N. Poland.
Im NOT a Nazi , But he got the tattoo ,and he kept that to himself, but didn't they all say that in the end ?
Got his stiff ,its worth a lot if your into that sort of thing.
Flags ,Banners ,medals and uniform's , and a couple of Luger PO8s ,and a P38!
Something about a U234 ?
Oh well ,i wish i had known him. He shot an old Jewish man once because that man was marked for giving info to the wrong people.
The old man was dieing from cancer , He couldn't have held up under interrogation.
Surrendered himself ,and 200 men to the American's .

Show courage ,show unity .

I agree, we have to take the bad along with the good.

My wife keeps gitting stonewalled at Ellis Island. That is as far as she can go.

My brother has gone back to the Revolutionary War on one side and back to England on the other. Three generation back we are related to a very famous Comedian, TV, and movie actor. But then he slammed us with the information we are related to the infamous VP that thinks the world is going to boil. Well we knew about a slight connection from my Dad's side. But now he brings in a closer connetion from my Mom's side as well.

Where is old Joe when we really need him? Alaska Independence Calling Illegal Immigrants "Undocumented Aliens" is like calling Drug Dealers "Unlicensed Pharmacists"

A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America,' for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.' That is honor, and there are way too many people in this country today who no longer understand that fact.

Sourdough ,it is a shock to find out some things your family was keeping as dirty little secrets.
No one else would take his stuff ,so me and my wife did, and we have a lot of letters he had written to his wife before she passed away .
I cant read German ,so a friend of ours has been a big help here on this.
He was about as much a Nazi ,as i am an Obot. But he said in one letter you either did it ,or you joined those on the trains that were headed to the North.
The uniform is spooky as heck ,we only looked at it once ,and put it back in the trunk.
I guess that VP your talking about is ole Al baby isn't he ? WOW i don't know what is worse ,a Nazi or a Gore ?

Show courage ,show unity .

Wow! That's very interesting and all part of history.

I found that a 3 gr. grandfather murdered the first U.S. Marshall appointed to the position, then ran away to what is now Kentucky where he lived and died.

It bothered me for a while, until I realized I can't atone for ancestry's sins.

I will just leave them to God.

Take the good from the bad, and realize that often good comes from bad...

Where is the ammo?

Boy ,this must be rouge's gallery night !
When i was in College ,i knew a kid that was somehow directly related to Bonnie Parker. I have forgotten what that relation was exactly.
His family had photo's of her ,and old news paper accounts of her and Clyde.
Pretty exciting stuff there .

Show courage ,show unity .

Cohort: I have met many folks with the same last name from N. Carolina, Virginia, and Goergia. We may be related, I do know my group of Hunters came from there in the late 1700s. I'm sure way back somewhere we are related, but no one seems interested in looking at the branches. Rog

Was talking to my Brother last night. So far he has followed my Mothers side back to Virginia. He traced the Williams family back to 1607, with the Virginia Company.
