#Repost @maria_adiepena - Daniel Hale Williams was one of the first physicians to perform open-heart surgery in the United States and founded a hospital with an interracial staff. Born on January 18, 1856, in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, Daniel Hale Williams pursued a pioneering career in medicine. An African-American doctor, in 1893 Williams opened Provident Hospital, the first medical facility to have an interracial staff. He was also one of the first physicians to successfully complete pericardial surgery on a patient. Williams later became chief surgeon of the Freedmen’s Hospital. He worked as an apprentice with Dr. Henry Palmer, a highly accomplished surgeon, and then completed further training at Chicago Medical College. Williams set up his own practice in Chicago’s South Side and taught anatomy at his alma mater, also becoming the first African-American physician to work for the city’s street railway system. Williams—who was called Dr. Dan by patients— adopted sterilization procedures for his office informed by the recent findings on germ transmission and prevention from Louis Pasteur and Joseph Lister. #danielhalewilliams #drwilliams #surgeon #medicine #surgery #openheartsurgery #blackexcellence #blackhistorymonth #blackhistory #february #wakandaforever #wakanda #legendary #legend #history #ancestry #roots #tgif #positivevibes #friday #instagood

Everything your body came with into this life has been passed down to you through your DNA. The science of epigenetics clearly shows how your DNA changes under stress, and how you then pass that DNA to your children. Over the generations, we literally accumulate stress from our ancestors. You have in you the part of your parents that make up your hair texture, eye color, and skin carnation. You have in you the part of your grandparents that makes your body resilient during times of famine. You have in you the part of your ancestors that make up your immune system strength and your digestive system chemistry. You have in you the part of our common ancestors that makes it impossible for us to digest pesticide-laden grains and makes us die from poisoning from our mercury polluted fishing waters. You also have in you the part of your mom that worries a bit too much, the part of your grandfather that felt suppressed during the war, the part of your ancestors that had their human rights taken away under another empire's occupation. On the bright side, we accumulate POSITIVE resources through our DNA as well. You have in you the unique bioelectrochemical signature of financial success, happy relationships, flourishing creativity, ideal mothership. You have in you the feeling of being nourished, being brave, assertive. I invite you today to investigate and examine your family's genealogy and identifying major stressors in your ancestor's lives. While you do so, don't forget to note the major successes and prosperities happening in their lives as well. Do you see any correlation between their biography and your current life? Which ancestor can you rely on for help with your current situation? Who could've experienced in the past what you currently seek in your life? #epigenetics #ancestry #ancestralhealing #dnahealing #timelinetherapy #pastlives #metaphysicalanatomy
Thank you for tagging #BrickStory in this post, @lorrainereedhsval . Built in 1824 for Joseph Lovell, the 8th Surgeon General for the US Army.

One of my #genealogy mysteries. Found in the few papers belonging to my Grandmother Ella, I’m trying to piece together who Katie was. She is buried with my family in a grave without a tombstone. The #Dubernet name is not familiar so I’m on a mission to identify Katie. Do you have unidentified folks buried with your family members? 🌳
my mom’s reply when I told her I had gotten my dna tests results back and that it turns out i’m only 21% irish but that I thought my brother carried more of the irish heritage. obviously it would be coming from her side of the family 😆☘️🍺🥃 #irishhumor #dna #ancestry

There is a significant difference between ancestry and biology. This Goddess of a Woman is my Grandmother who happens to reside in the Heavens and within The Eye Heartspace. She is one of the first reasons I knew I would be a musician and instilled within me the confidence and assurance to trust god and the path no matter what. She is my biggest advocate and my joy to connection even in her Heavenly residency I still talk with her and receive and give to and from her rich blessings of favor and grace. 🙏🏽🧬👽✌🏽💚🙌🏽🌻👁🖖🏽🌟 #ForeverYourSon #Alterphoto #Ancestry #Indian #Love #BeautifulWomanBeautifulSoul #SocialButterfly #MyQueenlyMother #Beauty #Strength

ON THE JOB Sitting outside the former home of Margaret Lynch Scott in New London, Connecticut, I feel odd, but dedicated to the mission. A large middle-aged man passes me on the sidewalk, glancing over at what I’m up to, as the bells of St. Mary Star of the Sea Church chime “Oh Come All Ye Faithful.” It’s late January, and I’m sitting on a collapsible stool, hunched over my sketchbook on a sidewalk in 50-degree weather, drawing an ordinary house, on an ordinary street. As I sit and draw, a man comes out of the house to get something from his pickup truck and double takes at me. That’s not uncommon. I wish to be invisible, but I’m not. A week earlier, a kid passed by me twice—the second time looking down and saying “That’s sick.” in reference to my upside-down drawing. Thankfully, nowadays that’s a compliment. In this series, I’m finding, and visiting, and drawing the sites of my immigrant ancestors. I had no idea there were so many. And I’m being taken to places I’ve never been, even within areas where I’ve lived. Sometimes much has changed in a century and a half, and other times very little. I often find new immigrants living in the exact places my ancestors did, starting out just like my family—at the bottom. The large man returned a little later with a big bag of fast food under his arm. As he passed, he sang out “Artist on the job!” I like that. I sing it now and then to myself when I’m working in strange places . . . . . . #ancestry #newlondon #connecticut #sketchbook #sketch #risd #urbansketchers #risdillustration #immigration #immigrants

February was first proclaimed Black History Month in 1976. This year’s theme is “Black Migrations,” celebrating the movement of African Americans from the American South to the North and elsewhere from 1916-1970. During this transition America saw the rise of Black industrial leaders, entrepreneurs, and musicians, and more. ✨ ... My people are from Jamaica and Panama. Eventually they migrated to the United States and settled in New York. My great-grandfather was a real estate investor with properties all over town, principal, postal worker, and social worker. He made an impact in his community daily and always gave people money or food in times of need. I am a proud descendant of Felix Watson. He left his family a legacy, values, and an unyielding spirit.✨ ... Where are your ancestor’s from? ...

A picture of my great-great-grandfather (name unknown to me)... do I look like him? #ancestry #everyonewasdapperbackthen
✨it’s amazing✨ . And a little creepy! The photo I am holding is a picture taken in 1903 of my great great grandmother on my dad’s side. Her name was Ida Lilly Hewitt. I don’t know much about her other than that. . Isn’t genetics just crazy? We are literally THE SAME PERSON! Take me back to the 1900’s, in that garb, and call me Ida! . Anyone else have an uncanny resemblance to their ancestors? #teambenefit

Lets get married. My parents in 1969. October 3th.
My aunt always says my great-grandpa talked about the "Old Country." So for opening night, I brought the "Old Country" back. On the surface Fiddler on the Roof is a story about Judaism. But it's also a story about all our ancestors who had to leave their homes or fight for their rights. Slovakia was no different. Discriminated against in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, through Magyarization (or Hungarization) my ancestors strived to revive the Slovak culture and language. And that's why @fiddlernyc is important to this Goy and EVERY American in 2019 #heritage #historyrepeatsitself #slovensko

All of life is in constant flux, and the heart, exposed to the forces of change and transformation, will follow its own cycles and rhythms. By honouring each opening as well as closing we support its deeper wisdom. To welcome the stories of our aching heart allows us to open up to all aspects of life-death-and rebirth with respect and compassion. * * * Art by @ssopiru * * * #healing #integration #trauma #innerwork #innerlife #ancestors #familyconstellations #systemicfamilyconstellations #depthpsychology #carljung #inneractivist #innerjourney #unconscious #consciousness #interconnectedness #familytree #ancestry #humanpotential #brighton #depression #loss #grief #pastpresentfuture #soul #heart #heartbroken #sacredlife #transpersonal #shadowwork #towardswholeness
Port Arthur - Im embarrassed to admit I knew next to nothing about the place before the shocking massacre in 1996. Now I understand not only that it was a penal colony for convicts who were undoubtedly criminals, but also a place for anyone inclined to rebel against their conditions. “Absconding” being a leading crime among the files I perused. The most astonishing fact I discovered is that it was also a place where “political prisoners” (Irish freedom fighters et al) were kept, in relatively hospitable conditions. Fascinating and horrible and beautiful (the location!) all at once. Sobering too, to know some of my convict ancestors ended up in Norfolk Island - which was a similarly high security prison History... sometimes it really punches you in the face. #portarthur #penalcolony #irishfreedom #irelandforever #tasmania #history #britishatrocities #colonialism #hardlabour #legirons #ancestry #australianhistory #ruins

If you don’t like bagpipes then I would scroll on...but I absolutely love bagpipes! So I mentioned over the weekend that I was looking at mapping out my family tree, and I’ve actually managed to go right back to the 13th century.

Have you had a chance to watch the short film Railroad Ties that debuted at the Sundance Film Festival? If not, you should in honor of Black History Month. It’s a powerful story of bravery and I grantee it will bring a tear to your eye. The opening statements sum up what i know to be true about discovering the stories of your ancestors. There is power in knowing where you come from. Link in profile. p.s. some of my colleagues did the research for this film. It’s so much fun to work on projects like this. #ancestry #blackhistorymonth #slavery #undergroundrailroad

After 30 years of searching I found my biological fathers family. I was so graciously welcomed and loved by them. They have been helping me in the search for my father. I can’t believe I have two cousins and a wonderful Aunt. I’m in such to finally see photos of my father. To find out how much I look like him. Help me find my biological father the saddest part is he most likely never knew I existed. . #ancestry #wheresjerry #dna #helpmefindmydad #blessed #reunited @theellenshow

MANIFESTATION TIP: condense ( the idea or emotion of) what you wish to your manifest into a symbol..Symbols are easily absorbed by the subconscious mind. Similarly to how we know this symbol means 💚 love and this symbol means 💔 heart break. Metaphor, meme, and emoji culture is a perfect example of the power of images and symbolism. One symbol or picture can incorporate so many complex meanings, emotions, and attributes. When you are manifesting create symbols or sigils with special meaning for you ( or you can use popular ones like I showed above) meditating on these symbols or even having them around your space will help attract the energy into your reality. This is a similar concept to hanging vision boards or even wearing religious symbols or pendants or having specific art work in the home. It adjusts your intentions, affects your energy and informs your subconscious mind Pictured here are Adinkra Symbols which I spoke about in a previous post. . . . . . . . . . . #adinkra #akan #ashanti #asante #african #gold #blackexcellence #ancestors #ancestry #tarot #tarotreader #oracle #intuitive #manifestation #psychic #energy #wisdom #intuition #tarotreading #oraclereading #psychicreading #dailytarot #dailyoracle #horoscope #sunsign #moonsign #ascendent #love #zodiac #sigil
I am attracting experiences to me for my greatest and highest good. I am wealth and I embody riches, therefore material , spiritual, and emotional wealth is drawn to me and remains with me abundantly. I am love and therefore my soul mates, my spouse, my family , my friends, many loving experiences and people are drawn to me and remain with me for my highest good. I am health, and therefore I maintain healthy mind , body, spirit and healthy boundaries always. I am eternally protected and healed. I am joy and happiness flows to me and through me. I share happiness with others because my cup is over flowing . I am eternally an energetic manifestation of Love, Joy, Wealth, and Health.

ADINKRA Symbols originate from West Africa. These symbols are very popular in Ghana specially among Ashanti People . I especially love Adinkra symbols because they incorporate a phrase or concept into a single symbol. Symbols can hold power! They can be used to inspire deep emption or to hold knowledge and wisdom. I keep this ancestral practice in mind when I create sigils for myself for my own manifestations and to serve as a symbolic place holder for my own sacred phrases and concepts. . . . . . . . #adinkra #akan #ashanti #asante #african #gold #blackexcellence #ancestors #ancestry #tarot #tarotreader #oracle #intuitive #manifestation #psychic #energy #wisdom #intuition #tarotreading #oraclereading #psychicreading #dailytarot #dailyoracle #horoscope #sunsign #moonsign #ascendent #love #zodiac #sigil

Is your family tree "done?" Try researching one of your direct-line ancestor's siblings! This past week I decided to research my great-grandfather's brother because I saw that he was married but had no children listed. After looking at census records, I found his two children! . This picture is of my great-grandfather William Oliver Sherwood. . P.S. - your family tree will never be done!! There is always going to be more to discover! 😊 . . #familyhistory #growyourtree #familysearchtips #genealogytips #ancestry #ancestors #sherwood

Results came back exactly how I expected. 😂 But I sure have enjoyed the experience. Thanks to @23andme for this exciting process that actually took 2 weeks less than it was supposed to. I'm 49% Iranian. (Lol this is all my dad) 36% British & Irish (maternal grandfather was British and Irish, mostly from Kent, England) 5% French (my maternal grandmother was a French Huegenot) Interestingly, my results came back with more Iranian variants than my brother's. I guess that explains my darker hair, eyes, and skin 😂😂 we've enjoyed comparing our results on the app!
Carmela Mair 1902-1930 was born in Italy and immigrated in 1908 with her parents Michaele Mair and Isbella Paetre. She married Antonio Petruzzelli on July 2, 1922. They had two children, Phlip named after Tony's father and Beatrice. I imagine she died in childbirth at such a young age but I couldn't find anything about her death. I loved her beautiful picture on her grave, I suspect it was her wedding photo. Forever 28. Antonio Petruzzelli 1896-1961 was born in Salerno, Italy and sailed on the ship Berlin to America, arriving in July 1911. He was processed through Ellis island along with his father Filippo and mother Filumem and 6 siblings. They all ended up living in the Bronx. #saintraymondscemetery #bronx #cemetery #cemeteryphotography #grave #graveyard #familysearch #ancestry #billiongraves #taphophile #taphophiles_only #coimetromania #genealogy #genealogist #tombstone #tombstonetourist #headstone #headstonehistory #notrelated #petruzzelli
Greg had never visited the graveyard where his great-grandparents are buried, and we went looking for it. It turned out to be a small plot of land on the foot of a very green hill overlooking the Atlantic, with strong gusts of wind coming in from the ocean. Even though there were a few houses around the graveyard, the site felt really disconnected from any center of human activity, and somehow more connected with the hill and the sea. What the eye could see around Cinn Aird probably hasn't seen much change in all this time, so, in taking this picture, there was the rare opportunity of capturing a full circle of time, where a greatgrandson visits the grave of his greatgrandparents, and what we see before the lens probably looks very similar to the scene that people had before them when they were still alive.
Unless you’re actually on @Ancestry , you don’t know how exciting this notification moment is.

Thanks to @Ancestry and @FamilySearch , I’ve been having a grand time meeting my #relatives who also descended from #KingEdwardI and #QueenEleanor of Castile. 😀 I thought it might be awkward meeting random #family members, but my experience has only been pleasant. Meeting new relatives you like who are NICE and welcoming is like being given a friend. 💕 My relatives are serious genealogists who have been studying our roots for over a decade, so there’s always something fun for me to discover. 😊 #genealogy #genealogist #whodoyouthinkyouare #ancestry #ancestors #spain #spanish #england #britain #british #uk #history #life #kingedwardlongshanks #kingedward #inspiration #plantagenet #famiglia #familia
