Lynn Hummel column: Respecting our ancestors
When my grandpa Gottlieb gathered his five children and pregnant wife in 1903 to leave Klostitz, Bessarabia to come to America to farm and homestead in North Dakota, he brought nothing more than his family, his values and $700. I learned something about his values but I never knew what events or circumstances prompted the move or how long it took to save the $700. I never knew because I was 15 years old when he died and I never really asked him any questions.
