Family trees

Reading petes blog today about the 1911 census being released got me to thinking about my family roots, we have done quite an extensive search on my maternal and paternal sides of the family. anyway in happens to be that my nans side originated in Callington cornwall and also from essex
Now i have lived most of my life in essex and now cornwall without knowing any connections to these places so my theory is :-
1: are our lives mapped out for us even though we don't know it, is it an inbiult sub-conscious we have that draws us to these places?
2: We have already lived before and are acting out the same life in different times?
3: Or is it just fate?

I can hear you PETE chattering and laughing "load of old rubbish" but who knows for sure nobody?!!
Oh yes and we do have a ghost who resides with us here is it one of my long departed ancestors must be said she seems quite friendly!

You may have something there Jan. I am now living in Wales as you know. My mum was evacuated to South Wales as a schoolgirl during the war. My dad met and married a girl from the Valleys when he was young, which didn't work out and he then met mum. I met and fell in love with a guy from Harrow, but whose dad was Welsh and had moved to England to find work. We ended up living in Wales through sheer coincidence not because we made a conscious effort to come here. Spooky eh?

That Pete, tut, lol. Yep, I find it's interesting to think about these things. I have had ghosts here for years. Friendly though like yours. Ahem, is that a "balderdash" I hear from Pete, lol.

OC: It is a strange and wonderful world we live in! it's great that everybody has a different view the world would be a boring place if we were all the same. my ghost is a victorian lady in a white dress and bonnet
