    Thank you for this Sister Queenie.

    I'm a little disappointed that there was very little mention of the Ancestors lost. Virtually nothing about them, their names, ages, sex, where specifically they came from, the number lost, etc. From reading the article, it's almost as though they were secondary to all the other stuff the ship contained. Kinda sad.

    Thanks for sharing.

    :heart:
