Great-great-great grandmother

Two cousins recently delivered to me a set of photos of our ancestors and a genealogical chart largely put together by our grandmother. Collectively, they did an incredible job, and I am one of the beneficiaries. The photo above is of one of our great-great-great grandmothers, Margaretta Wingerter, from Hamburg, Germany. She is the main source of my sunny disposition and incredible good looks. — Jer

    At first I thought, “Well, he didn’t inherit her hair.” But then I realized she is wearing a bonnet – whew. Nice to have a family history. I’ve read that until they have reached the age of fifty
    the vast majority of American’s are not interested in their ancestors. Unless they are Mormons, of course.
