I have grown up with…a Mum, Dad, Brother, Uncle and Nan. (and briefly a great nan, a fake auntie and a grandad)
But that’s really all it’s been, lots of people talk about how they have loads of cousins and auntie.
Is it important to know?
I was looking through some old pictures that my parents have of old relatives…it’s kind of creepy looking at them and see the people who I am genetically related to …people I don’t even know.
My dad’s dad died in a car crash when he was 17, apparently he was really cleaver…I would have loved to have met him…
However, this is all well and good but…I’m not exactly any worse off because I didn’t know these people.
But if I had a time machine…because in all -what if’s- time machines seem to be easy to come by…I would definitely go say hello. Especially to my great granddad since I was named after him. (His name was Charles…I’m Charlotte…yeah maybe the logic was lost somewhere)
I guess…stuff…background stuff that doesn’t really matter…but interesting all the same.
