Learning My Father’s Family History in Maryland

Needing a change of pace as well as a new place to live my life, I opted to move across the United States from my home in Arizona to Maryland, where I had a lot of family on my father’s side. Looking for apartments in Towson MD was first on my list of things to do as I could not envision living in the basement of my aunt and uncle’s home forever.

i knew I would be in for a bit of a shock once the winter came, but the thought of being so close to the ocean and in the land of all of that wonderful Maryland Blue Crab had me quickly forgetting how cold and snowy it could be in Baltimore.

I was also interested in learning some more about the history of my country as well as the history of my father’s side of the family. My mother’s parents had always lived very nearby when I was growing up and all were very much like me, but my father’s family was a bit of a mystery as we only saw a few members here and there for weddings and funerals. I looked forward getting to know his siblings and my cousins and seeing the lives that they led on the East coast.

I had spent the last twelve years working in an office and when the opportunity arose for me to get a little more creative and work alongside my uncle in his restaurant, I couldn’t pass up the chance to do something I had longed to do since I was a child. I enjoy baking and looked forward to having some of my creations grace my uncle’s menu and was also looking forward to learning about preparing some of the savory dishes his restaurant is known for as well.
