    New and Nervous

    Hello, everyone, I'm afraid you'll all think I'm barely entitled to be on this site. I am a total newbie at this, though I remember my mother's, and before that, my grandmother's stories, and some things they hinted at, and a few odd things, such as why my great-grandparents were married in a...
