  •  Your diary reminded me of something (0+ / 0-)

    from my family tree. I recently had some contact with a relative. We've both worked on our family trees and just traded some information about various ancestors. My grandmother was either the cousin or the second cousin of Sigurd Haugdahl, a race car driver in the 1920s (here's the Wikipedia article). Apparently he was the first guy to drive 180 mph (which at the time was a big milestone because it's three miles per minute). He did it at Daytona beach.
