Do you love genealogy? If so, then this story is for you. Written by the grand-daughter of a Belgian immigrant who came to America in 1910, it describes her efforts to find and reunite with his family in Belgium after a breakdown in communication for twenty-five years. When she makes a pilgrimage to meet her relatives in the old world, they pull out all the stops and treat her like a movie star. The second part of this book is about her father’s family.  His family stories include Quakers, buried treasures of gold coins, fighting Indians, homesteading, and owning slaves.
