Because of the Meyer bloodline we were fortunate enough to meet Henry and his family via @ancestry two years ago. Today Henry finally met Clarice, who is his actual second cousin, but they didn't previously know of one another until we were digging up roots. This will definitely be one of my favorite (early) Thanksgivings. Thanks again @ancestry 💗
I can't stop staring at his face. He was so handsome, so young, and his features are so different from mine. Looking at his face I find it impossible to believe we are related; separated only by three generations. He served in World War II and lost his life in battle. I don't know where he fell, but I have been researching his unit. It's strange that I can't find more information on him. It's strange that I can't seem to stop staring and wondering about his life. 😕 #greatgreatuncle#family#familyroots#familytree#life#death#rebirth#militaryfamily#patriot
Puerto Rico Se Levanta..❤🇵🇷 This is for my family, for the island and to honor the 39th year of my Aunt's passing... I got the black and white version for resistance and because PR is being ignored.. I get my tattoos to honor those I love, and things that I am passionate about.. Thank you Jake @vantigerstyle for always giving my story a visual, and for making it look so amazing...😊❤ @kris_toro @laratoro @andrealeigh1123
I'm a mixed bag of heritages. Of those who have come before me.
I am; Lakota, Mexica, German, Russian, Polish, & French.
I never knew my biological Father so usually when I am put up against the backdrop of my family I appear out of place in the sea of blonde or auburn hair & blue eyes.
But occasionally I get a photo where I can clearly see those who have come before me.
I see my Great Grandma Boehm in my nose, the same nose I share with my cousin, @smoothedenver. I see my Great Grandma Stein in my jaw line & my Mama in the way I hold my self.
Everything else that doesn't fit I know was gifted from my Fathers genetics.
Seeing your roots on display is something special. Something powerful.
If you haven't met me, then you've no idea how proud and passionated of my roots I am. In Cornwall my nickname was "crazy Latvian" not Elina or Eleina, but they called me "Latvia". Miss Latvia who probably is the Royal family member of Latvia. I love my British friends thinking 😊. I am huge ambassador of Latvia as living abroad. But my love to Latvia isn't seen in my folk dance , my choir singing, wearing national outfit or knowing by heart lines of famous poets, but I can sing every @brainstormofficial song, I can make traditional Latvian meals into vegan, I love Latvian mythology spirits, I'm drawn to the core of spiritual&psychological meaning Latvian identity. I LOVE my country, and I carry my sense of belonging to this one specific nation in my heart. It gives me the energy abroad, but now and then I return to gain strength for next missions. I'll be forever and always as ambassador of Latvia anywhere I am.
Happy 99, you old wise land! You've the most incredible , productive, creative, strongest and trustworthy people any land could wish. Keep being yourself and shine! 💜💜💜 The only reason I can survive November, knowing it's Latvia day! #visitLatvia#wanderlust#familyroots#myheritage#love#Latvia99#childhood#proudLatvian#enjoylatvia#countryside#neverstopexploring#iamnordic#folkcreative#natureaddict#ig_Latvia#Latvian#latvija#thisislatvia#independenceday
