It’s been a while since I’ve been able to post anything. With graduate season upon us, I had to first get through my daughter’s high school graduation and then my son’s graduation from the fifth grade! I am so proud of the two of them!
It’s funny how things work out. I recently received an email from a gentleman who lives in Florida and has been researching his Cape Verdean roots for the last eight years. He and his cousin have accumulated quite a database of information. After speaking with one of them for about an hour, we discovered that we are very closely related and even knew each other as kids! This passion for genealogy must be in the genes!

My name is Anna Lima. I am the daughter of immigrants, born and raised in Massachusetts. I am the mother of two and a Speech Pathologist. My love of family history began as a child listening to my elders speak of “the old country”. Through their stories grew a love for the culture and traditions of my ancestors and I wanted to know more about who they were. My great-grandmother, our family Griot, was my greatest inspiration as she passed down stories and traditions that have helped me become the person I am today. I believe that remembering our ancestors strengthens who we are. I hope to continue my great-grandmother’s legacy, to continue to pass down the stories of not only my own family history but also the stories of the ancestors of anyone who wishes to remember. My blog is dedicated to the ancestors, those remembered and those yet to be found.
