Angkor is one of the most important and the greatest archaeological sites in the world. This by the way the world’s largest (400 square kilometers) temple complex (almost a 1000 temples) was between IX and XV century the capital of the Khmer Empire. Probably, in the eleventh century, numbering one million inhabitants of Angkor was the largest city in the contemporary world.
Wow. This is incredible.
My mom got jealous that we found out so much about my dad’s family so she’s been bugging her relatves for information
and my great aunt, my grandmother’s sister, told her that Giovanna (my great great grandmother, the original immigrant) was sent with her siblings by her parents to escape “the volcano”
so we searched volcano eruptions around sicily (where they lived), and evidently there were more than 3 volcanos erupting during the late 1890s and the early 1900s, right when Giovanna came over.
We always knew that Giovanna’s parents never came over, but now knowing this, it’s incredible.
Her uncle, Giuseppe, was sent ahead of them so that the kids could be sent over (he was called a patrone) with someone to go to. Can you just imagine that? Sending your brother to New York, and in the following months sending all of your kids away to protect them from the shit that was going on in Italy during this time, knowing that you’ll probably never see them again.
That’s so incredible to me.
So I’m still doing a bunch of family research on my dad’s side, and I just found out I’m more closely related to Sir George Downing* than King Henry VIII
He’s my 9 times great grandfather, compared to King Henry VIII being my 14 times great grandfather.
*the guy Downing Street in London is named after
So my highlighter just started spinning???? And no one knows why?????
