If I took three months off from my current life I would create my "Who Do You Think You Are".
I would begin by travelling to Osborne Kansas where my grandparent's families lived (my mother's side). I had heard a story that my great grandfather was a jeweler, I would love to see where his 'shop' was. I would also love to see what the town is like and what their lives would have been like.
The next stop would be Ohio where my great great grandmother's family lived for a time after they immigrated from England.
I would then go to England to see if I could figure out their story. I want to know what it was like in Somerset England in the 1860's. I want to know why they immigrated to the US. I also want to know if I could trace my ancestor's any farther back.

After I looked into my mother's side, I would start on my father's side. It wouldn't be too far to go from England, they are from Ireland.
