Was speaking today a lot about genealogy with my grandma. She showed me pictures, told many fascinating stories📝, secrets (the time has come to reveal them, she said 👵🏼👀) and travels of ancestors. Unbelievable I could track my genealogy tree up to names from 1820’s!! 🕰 🌳 Never thought knowing roots can be so powerful ‼️hearing about life of people you never met before but came from:) Apparently I have not only Lithuanian 🇱🇹 and Russian 🇷🇺 blood mix, but also slightly Polish 🇵🇱 and Mordvin (moksha)! My curiosity took place first this January ❄️ when I traveled to Moscow to meet my family there! I did not only meet relatives I didn’t see for 10 years (my true champions 🥇@maksimpotorokin
, Ela and @potorokina_mm
🏆) but also for the first time in my life met the family of another uncle of mine with two lovely sisters who I am blessed to have in my life now (talented artist @mariannayaa
and Sofia♥️). Thrilling experience.
Crazy how family roots and history can change all perception of your life ⛅️Hope now when I sorted a little bit of history puzzle, I will be able to meet and share stories with other relatives of ours who undoubtedly are walking on the same planet right now! 🌍⚡️#adventure #time #exciting #finding #relatives #family #history #geneology #tree #love #save #past #know #your #roots
