Genealogy isn't for the faint-hearted


7 months later, I get a message on Ancestry - someone from the Hasenstab family.

This gal actually knew "Uncle Ed" and "Aunt Cordie".  As you will read, she tells me, something that blew my mind. My Grandfather also committed suicide. Gunshot, same as my Mom. By this time, I had found out that my Great Grandfather, Michael, had jumped off a bridge to his death.

This was 3 generations of suicide in the Hasenstab family.

This is NOT what I was looking for. You have to understand, that when you dig through the mysteries - you just might find out why they were mysteries, to begin with.

She eventually said she would send me a picture - she never did. In fact, she just stopped communicating with me.
