Being around a person all of your life, but not really knowing that person can put you at a disadvantage. At some point, you must come face to face with that person, even if it’s you. Looking through the eyes and beyond the flesh is necessary to truly understand that person from within.
“Coming Face II Face with Myself” is a book that evolves from a historical equation based on information known and archived data gathered. It creates a connection from one era to the next in an attempt to bring a history back to life. We all need to face that storm that’s keeping us from coming face to face with ourselves in order to see who we really are.
My interest in researching family history started in the 1970s when I realized that I did not know who I was. A conversation with a group of people with different ethnic backgrounds created my interest. We started talking about our origin, along with culture and customs. I can only remember saying "I was born in Kentucky, but my family connections are from Tennessee and Florida". At the time, that's all I knew. This created a great void in me, which started my journey for questions and answers of who I was. I needed my history to fill that emptiness within me.
