In the spirit of the 137th Kentucky Derby and my Kentucky ancestors . . . I took a photo of a 2008 commemorative 134th Kentucky Derby drinking glass given to me by my aunt in Kentucky. In 2008, I traveled for the first time to Kentucky to meet my paternal aunt. We had no idea each other existed until I started to research my family history. When I saw this beautiful state . . . where most of my paternal ancestors lived and died, I feel in love with Kentucky and I could fell my deep roots there. I am also a member of the Kentucky Historical Society . . . I just received my Spring 2011 issue today . . . the two go well together.
