Anyone else experienced strange things happening while doing family history? :LOL:

When on holidays once we called in to see my hubby's elderly cousin, a lovely old lady who we had seen heaps of time but this time we called into her place to see her. She had some old family photos up on the wall, one been my hubby's late grandparents taken early 1900's. I took photos of all the photos on the wall and checked my camera and all the pictures i had taken were on there. When we got home a couple of weeks later i downloaded them onto the computer and very strangely the photos of the late grandparents were not there :oops: All other photos were there just not the grandparents ones :confused:

Another one was when i was digging around into my late grandfather's military records. Every time i had them up on the computer screen my disc door would open on the computer tower. I would close it and not long after it would open again. When i closed the window on the military records the disc door stopped opening. The happened several times over a couple of months. I loved my grandad and at times i feel he is with me so wonder if this was his way of letting me know he was. Either that or i had a weird disc door thingy :unsure: Just seemed to strange to be a coincidence.

Love stories like this you hear about them so often there must be some meaning to them. Same with reincarnation but I won't go into that controversial subject right now.

Keith you would need a month with us to fill you in on our stories :LOL: Most of my family seem to have experiences that just happens, we're just that way now that we just go with the flow. Makes interesting conversation at family gatherings :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

Yeah like i was born with a inch long very fine thin scar on my forehead, when i asked my mother about it she said i have always had it since newborn.
I have read quiet a lot of stories about reincarnation, some are so interesting.

At the risk of being carted of to the loony bin here's my thoughts on reincarnation concerning myself. Every time I see a Spitfire, Hurricane or Lancaster aircraft from WW2 I get a lump in my throat and often as not my eye's well up with tears. Even if I just hear the sound of a Merlin engine the same happens. I can't explain this at all, none of my ancestors were in the RAF during WW2 as far as I know but I was born 2 years after the war ended. In the 1970's "fate" took me to live very near to a Battle of Britain air field and every time I walked up there I had a great feeling of sadness.

Well if you get carted of to the loony bin you certainly won't be on your own :LOL: One day something might pop up to explain why you feel like that when you hear them motors, or sometimes we never know why. All very interesting all the same.

To much happens that i feel people can't rule out reincarnation, without at least questioning it. There are those who believe and those who don't but at the end of the day it's how you feel. Personally i do believe, tho some stories are just totally rubbish but others have to much evidence to be ignored. The Jenny Cockell story was fascinating.

Since i was young i always have this picture in my head of standing in a large kitchen, walls made from large rectangle blocks and a huge fire place in the middle of it. One of those fire places that they cooked on. Im dressed in white like housemaid clothing. Im standing between the fire place and a wooden table. Don't look like me yet i sense it is me.
See you won't be on your own when they cart you off :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: I could talk about these things all day.

Re-incarnation? I like many others would not think it could possibly happen, but the speculation is always there.

During WWII my father's younger brother lost his life on 17 June 1940 when HMT Lancastria sank. He was initially
buried on 13 July 1940 - and I was born on that day but 5 years later. A friend said it was 'spooky'? Is it just co-incidence?

My father and my grandson had some sort of thing happening between them. Grandson was born with some health issues and my dad at the time had not been well. For some reason their appointments with scans, specialist and surgeries seem to collide on the same day. Not once or twice but most of the time. Different towns, different health problems, different doctors yet the dates seem to always be the same for both of them. After my father passed it has not changed any, grandson had surgery on the day of my father's funeral, another operation was on would have been my dad's birthday and on and on it goes. I find it comforting actually, like dad is watching over him.
[PS same grandson was born on his late nanna's birthday]
