First Lady’s Roots

I ran across an interesting article that the New York Times ran in 2009 about Michelle Obama’s family tree.

It always fascinates me to learn about other people’s family history – and the longer I am alive myself, the more convinced I am that we are all interconnected in some way. And when we think times are tough – and make no mistake – they ARE tough for a lot of Americans right now, at least we aren’t in the middle of a civil war.

A lot of publicity has been generated about the President’s background, but this is the first article I have read that delved into the First Lady’s family history. I hope you find it as interesting as I did.

And look closely at the picture of Mrs. Obama’s mother – I see Michelle all over again in her mom.
