Mary, just tell us when you’re not feeling fine or feel sad! We don’t always feel it or notice it, because we can’t see your expression from where we live!
I find on this forum you’re such lovely and lively! A mood lifter! Really great to get to know you and talk with you! You’re really younger than your real age
I also think we share the same kind of humor LOL
The other day, I was watching a genealogy documentary, but haven’t finished it yet, it’s like a mini-series in French with 5 or 6 ep?
While reading the synopsis, I thought it was a pity you couldn’t watch this, you could have liked it!
In short, it is like when people are gone from this world, they leave an inheritance.
However, their heirs are not always easy to find, so the lawyer has to call some genealogists to find them!
They show us how they do to find heirs, the clues they get from investigating, questioning people, friends or neighbours, showing pictures or asking or looking in city hall old files to find the register of family! Once they find someone who might know something, they go in a far away city to see that person that gives them more clues.
They have like a giant database where they store data about each person, their blood relationships…
There’s also History: like we had a lot of people migrating from all over the world because of WWII or wars, so finding their cousins, uncles, aunts in all Europe, Poland… Sometimes, it’s an old person from an Eastern European country that learns she’s inheriting a big house or thousands euros from a distant cousin that migrated to France.
They even had the case where the mom was abusing her 9 children. She kept 1 child and abandoned her 8 children to orphanages and when she was gone from this world, they did research to find back these children now adults. It was like a family gathering! Since they were adopted from different families, they didn’t see each other since childhood!
So their job is to find heirs! Quite a quest and special job!
