I have been tracing my family on ancestry.com for the last couple of years and am having a great time. I've found relatives who have shared cool family pictures and stories. I also think I am related to Jamie. Poor guy. Oral history on my dad's side was that we were directly descended from Henry Morgan, so of course I loved pirates and pirate stories growing up. My parents couldn't get me off Pirates of the Caribbean ride in Disneyland; I was really upset when they took away my cutlass (butter knife); Well, that story turned out not to be true (Morgan married his cousin Elizabeth and had no children). But I DID find a pirate in the family-- Sir Henry Mainwaring. So you see, Jamie's theme that myths have kernels of truth in them bears out.
