St Louis Two brought the story of the"Donner Party" back to
my memory.

Ronald Ramey

Mr. Ramey would like to know if he is related to Raymond Eugene Waters, a black man.
Ronald learned that the name 'Ramey' is of French origin. Unfortunately Ronald was not related to Raymond Eugene Waters. Learn why, interesting.

Mr. Ramey's line was taken back in time. Ronald learned that William Remy, his 7th great grandfather was born in 1672 and of noble birth.  Two other relatives back in time were George Remy and Didier Remy. Ron had a further surprise. His lineage was
taken back to one Bishop Saint Remi, born in 437 A.D. died 533 A.D.

I say WOW.  One of my lines goes back to the late 1500s' and I thought that  was terrific.
