Learning My family History

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

Moving back to where I was born (California), has been a challenge for me. I left good friends and I loved the East Coast. Since I have been here though I have been learning so much about my family History and am excited about what I am learning.

My maiden name is Cunningham and we are Scottish of course. I am learning that my family dates all the way back to MacBeth. How cool is that?

Some of the things I knew about my family were already impressive like the Golden Gate park and how my great great great uncle designed and built it, plus he lived there as a keeper until his death. They even have a statue and many memorials to him at the park.

It’s so crazy, but learning more about John McLaren made me realize just how much we resemble and some similarities in traits.

Another fun thing I have learned they have out here in California is several Scottish Highlands festivals and games. In fact there is one coming up in a month, and I can’t wait to attend.

I even got in contact with the person that runs the Cunningham booth at the games and it turns out she is a distant cousin. So I can’t wait to meet everyone and learn more about my family. Plus all the Clan Cunningham gear I get to see.

One thought on “Learning My family History

  1. That is fun you can trace your family back that far. It is also interesting about the bridge… your kids can ‘see’ their great grandfather and be proud of what he accomplished. Its always neat to go back in time and find out what your family did in history.
