Our Neil Armstrong small bunny trail
We're slowly making our way through Neil Armstrong (but ds1 is liking it more and is now *asking* to read more of it! and we are moving along more steadily), but anyway, as we are working through chapter 4, we were discussing the Ellis Island part, and I was able to share the immigration information from my great-grandpa (ds1's great-great grandpa), who went through Ellis Island almost 100 years ago, and who was of Polish (one of the former Prussian regions) and Russian background (one of my mom's cousins is into genealogy and found this info). We also discussed Prussia.
So how cool is that, to tie something like that in?
