It Helped Me Find Answers

Not all of them, but some answers. It opened new doors.

 

I learnt I was the object, the knot, of a family secret. I think I sensed it for a long time, but consciously knew it about a year and half ago. So i don't really do genealogy the way most of people do. I'm not so interested in the far away-long ago family history, but in the corrolations and communication in the recent past, and its evolution to nowadays.

I have an online tree, and building it helped me to realize how torn apart I was, because of the lies, because of my biological heritage, but more because of the lack of communication. I "belong" to 3 different families, that have not communicated between each other. Then I identified that the family in which I lived was the real start of the secret. With basic genealogy, I was able to understand why I've felt so not a member of any family, and not even of the family in which I lived (because it seems everybody knew, but me). Also why I have myself great difficulties to communicate, in spite of my honesty and efforts.

 

Now it doesn't give all the answers, but clues to proceed in the good direction.
