Ancestors

What do you know about your own (or your main character’s) ancestors? What do you know about your family history or lineage? Where were your grandparents born? What did they do? What were their dreams or struggles? What were their joys or sorrows? What about your great grandparents? You might not know many facts about your ancestors or you might know a lot, but even if you have no information at all, use your imagination. What were their names? How did they live? Are their parts or your (real or imagined) lineage that impact how you feel or think or live today?Ancestors
