If You Could Time Travel, Who Would You Meet?

I often think about how awesome it would be to time travel to meet one of my ancestors. I want to hear their voices, see their faces, their eyes, hands and other physical features; to see if they looked like me. I could ask all the questions I have wondered about for years like; who was your father and mother? What were your biggest trials in life? What were your happiest moments in life? What was your biggest mistake? I want to know them deeper, than just names, dates and places. To know that they were probably like me in many ways. 

If I could time travel to meet any ancestor, it would be my great great great grandfather, George Washington Burnes, someone I admire and have learned to love.

Who would you want to meet and why?


  1. I would love to talk to my great great grand mother,Elizabeth Sleight-I could found out for sure who her father was.I have a theroy.:)Lorraine Blount Peckham

  2. I would find my father and sister, who have passed on, and take them to look for our great grandparents and find out who their families are and where in Germany they lived.

  3. I would search out my father and sister, who have passed on, and have them help me find our great grandparents to see who, their parents were.
