Setting the Scene, some family history

Jewish blood originates from my mother’s side of the family, not too much of a surprise since my grandmother looks “Albanian”. Looking the part is not enough for me, I want to search deeper.

Let’s do the math, great great grandfather, that is 4 generations back. He was probably born in the mid 1800’s, born or traveled to China somehow, probably for business and trade reasons.

Exhibit 1: My maternal grandmother at her youth

The mystery continues…Until next time….

    As a history teacher, I have found that most people have a compelling story to tell. I’m fascinated to hear yours.
