Dear all,

Our Benjamin turned seven recently. He realised a few weeks ago that if he is alive now, he must have had ancestors stretching back to the stone age and beyond. He was thrilled with this thought and asked me, who were my ancestors?

I took down the photo of my family taken in about 1915 (Vienna, in the Ehpes album) and told him, here are some of them. He took it from me and told his brother (3), "These were YOUR ancestors Joely!" Then he asked all sorts of questions about their army uniforms, at which point he got a lesson about the Telegraph Regiment and an introduction to the name, Cornel Fleming...

"I am going to put this up in my room," he told me, and off he went. So I don't have my favourite photo in the kitchen any more and I am very, very proud of my lovely boy.

Thank you all for being here to share your knowledge, wisdom and stories. Jerome and Bruce: kol hakovod! And a hug, albeit a digital one, for all that you do.

Warm regards,

Shula Klinger
