I can't help wishing to know about the buildings where my ancestors lived as well as about the homes they created. What interactions took place? What values were instilled in children as they grew? How were chores delegated? What games did the children play? It's easy to find some general information about families in different time periods but I wish I knew specific information about my own ancestral families.
Like most of us, our ancestors lived in houses and grew up in homes. To me, home is a place where a family lives, loves, gathers, works, plays, learns, and shares. It's the place which determines the path on which a child will begin his or her life's walk. That beginning at home effects the people our ancestors became.
