It all began in 1853. Thomas Ralph Douse was born in England that year. He was the youngest of eight brothers. The brothers scattered to various parts of the world, apparently. One, according to family hearsay, went to Canada. He may well have been the builder of great sailing ships, whose name was Douse and who is recorded in the history of ship building In Prince Edward Island. However, this has not been documented. Thomas Ralph Douse was the writer’s grandfather. Later, after my father died he became both Grandfather and Father to me and to my older brother, Jack. He was wonderful to me and I loved him dearly all my life. Grandpa Douse neither smoked nor partook of alcoholic beverages. as a host, however, he always had the finest wines on hand for his guests. His hobby was music. He played the organ with the touch and skill of a gifted musician, also the piano. He might well have become a successful musician and composer. Instead, he chose the hazardous life of an entrepreneur. I suspect, because it offered more challenge and greater financial rewards when successful.
My father, Leonard Ralph Douse, was a graduate of Cambridge University with a Master’s Degree in Science. His special field was analytical chemistry. His occupation, at the time of his marriage to my mother in 1901, was doing research work in his field for the British Government. In Grandpa Douse’s view, however, he was a nobody, a ‘mere’ civil servant. His father, at that time was not too enthusiastic about his eldest son’s career. My father also had a sister, Ella, what a wonderful aunt, adviser and teacher she became to me many years later. They also had a younger brother, Willie, and sonic six to eight years later, another sister, named Doris. Doris was only six years older than I and was more like an older sister than an aunt.
Why you should make your family tree
In order to evolve as individuals we must have a sense of direction in life, and the best way to achieve it is to understand where we are coming from. There is no better way to do that than to search your family history, learn about your genealogical past and discover exactly which evolutional steps led to your current existence. With today’s modern technology it is easier than ever before to find out more about your past through the power of the internet. It is considered that 6 out of 10 users go online each year in their quest to rummage through the personal accounts of family members that were not accessible just a few decades ago.
One of the main reasons why you should make a family tree is that you will learn more about your place in the Universe. The immediate consequence is that you will feel wiser and more aware of your surroundings. If you have been pondering about the meaning of your life and what your role is in the big picture, than you will most likely find the answers to these questions in a well-documented family tree. You can start by doing a little online research every day and take some time out of your usual Live Sex Cams sessions. Spending your whole night on these adult websites is very exciting, but it will not reveal too many details about your great grandfather’s life in the 19th century.
Another important aspect to having a well-determined family tree is that you understand all the connections that have been made over the years between members of your extended family. It is a great way to find out more about what your distant relatives liked to do and how their hobbies influenced the interests of their children. This way, you will probably find that your aunt’s passion for flirting with strangers has become a present-day career on http://www.camplace.com/ for her daughter. Stumbling upon your cousin on one of these platforms is not that surprising though, if you consider that many beautiful women can be found entertaining their online companions this way.
Making your family tree will bring you closer to many of your distant relative whom you have ignored until now. Establishing a connection with these people is hard if all that you have in common is a bloodline. However, if you share with them some of your interests, like your addiction to Live Sex Cams, then you might find something that you both can relate to. Meeting new people is easier and more exciting through the services offered by this type of online communication.
A family tree is more than just a diagram of names and birthdates that you can hang on the wall. This diagram could be filled with interesting stories about your relatives and their way of living. It might take a great bulk of your time spent on Live Sex Cams to find the ones that you relate to the most, but in the end you will feel like a better person. And very soon, you will be able to return to your hobby of making new friends through the help of these online dating websites.
