I have always been fascinated with history and little known facts are all the more intriguing. Like many people today, I find it more and more difficult to find time to do much reading for pleasure. In this blog, I hope to pluck little historical facts out of various resources and present them on the calendar date today based on the significant date in history.

    • Thanks. My husband and I have been building a family tree on Ancestry.com for a few years now but I love the way you have turned yours into stories posted here. I recently started a WordPress blog that tells my father’s WWII story that he never told since he passed away when I was a child.

    Wonderful blog. Glad I came across it. My father was an MP in England during WWII. I get very excited when I find anything regarding his service on Ancestry.com. He passed away over 20 years ago and I’m very sorry I never bugged him more about sharing his stories.

    • I think the regrets over loved ones stories is all too common. There is a big push to document WW2 living history because soon it will be gone forever. A few years ago, my brother-in-law made a living history interview with my mom and her immigration to the US. We’ll have it forever and it was special to have it shown during her viewing when she passed this year.

    Greetings!
    Your poem ‘Iron Bottom Bay’ is complete.
    I have a copy which was my Dad’s.
    He was one of the wounded survivors of the USS ASTORIA CA-34.
    I do have other info to share, if interested.

    Thank You for keeping our military history alive!
