I Dream of… Ancestors?
Do your ancestors ever appear to you in your dreams? I quite often have dreams about my parents–these don’t surprise me because I think about them every day. However, recently I had a dream about my Uncle John. I can’t remember the context of the dream, but I do remember two things: I could see his face clearly and he said to me “What can I do for you dear?” The strange thing is I haven’t been actively been doing any research on him (he passed away in 1995). His birthday is this month, however, so maybe somwhere in my subconscious I was thinking of him.
I’d like to know if anyone else has had a dream about an ancestor that was interesting, surprising, puzzling, or that helped you with a research breakthrough. I try not to read too much into things–but every once in awhile I have an experience that makes me wonder.
