Author Vella Munn & Her Grandfather Lost! — 10 Comments

  1. How many of us would love to do what Vella’s done and dig deeply into an ancestor whose genes make us what we are? Your grandpa would be so proud of you.

  2. I would love to win this book and read this story. I am into genealogy and I have a story of how I found a long lost grandfather who died during the civil war and is buried in a national cemetery. No one knew or remembered since or even knew his name for sure. It was a fantastic feeling the day I found his grave and stood there blubbering!!! I know this would be a good read. Blessings!

  3. How touching, Kathleen. You laugh like your grandmother. Isn’t it funny how family traits like this are passed on through the generations?

  4. My mother died a few days following surgery a month before my sixth birthday. I would love to see my mother as I have no memory of her. One neat thing happened, the Lord gave me. When I was seventeen I was visiting with a childhood school girl. When we walked in their entry hall, an elderly grandmother was in a wheelchair in the inner room. She heard me laughing and said, “Sally, is here.” “No, Sally died.” “Yes, I can hear her laughter.” Oh, what a blessing that was to me. A gift. Kathleen

  5. This is such a wonderful story, Vella.
    We have no mysteries in my family, but my dear mother was the youngest of nine and knew the “truth” about everyone. Her stories made the relatives I didn’t have the chance to meet all the more real to me. These aren’t stories I’d pass on, but I wonder if most families don’t have secrets of one sort or another they’d rather stayed that way.

  6. Hi folks, I’m sorry I’m not going to be around for the next few days but I’m not. Plans are for me to be back at my computer either Thurs evening or Fri morning. I’m trusting Lyn to make everyone behave in my absence. Please chat among yourselves. I promise to catch up.

  7. My parents were both born in Russia, so there were many stories of what they endured to reach Canada. My paternal grandfather died in Russia and Grandma came with 12 children to Canada. My maternal grandparents both passed away after living in Canada for some years. Unfortunately I never met any of my grandparents. I’m sure the stories of them fleeing Communism would have been incredible!

  8. That’s so cool!
    No, my family is boring, I didn’t heard of any stories, but who knows…
