My roommate (OK, so we haven't lived together since college and that was a year or two ago, but I still consider her, My Roommate) is very into genealogy. And she looked into my family tree for me. I had some questions about my heritage. It's just amazing the stuff I'm finding out. So far, my ancestors seem to share an affinity for marrying the hired help and growing great beards. You should see Great Aunt Hazel!
