119. I see great utility in intellectual curiosity, and if

intellectual curiosity is multiplied because it's all about ourselves, fine.

I know you're at all deficient in intellectual curiosity, MM, so I was mildly surprised that your own hits a wall in this direction. But we're all wildly complex, and your immediate family identity is very rich, so why not?

Our daughter got her background for a birthday present from her husband, and her dad and I, and her brother and his family, were all quite interested in the results. Our most recent ancestors were all immigrants not that far back from countries that were between wars; there were only a few of them, and most history that was passed down by the most recent generations was not recorded, lost to memory and then to the grave. Notably blank is my Jewish husband's, eastern European Ashkenazi Jewish background genetically, adopted in 1940 in NYC with no record disclosed.
