Elvis, The Great Freeze and Me.
Finding out I had German immigrant ancestors yesterday was exciting.
Earlier, I found out what ship they came on – on an Elvis Fan Club site of all places! It turns out Elvis’ ancestors came in on the same ship as mine – Ship: Fame Arriving New York June 14, 1710.
So, what brought Elvis and me to this land?

A freeze so strange and awful that to this day, scientists do not know the cause.
