My grandparents are leaving next month to go on an 18-month mission for the Mormon church. Grandma and Grandpa are big into genealogical research, and supposedly Scotland has a huge geneaological research center, so they volunteered to go over there and help the church sift through the mountains of data. Very noble of them.
My mom and her siblings threw a nice little going away party for Grandma and Grandpa this past weekend, and it was there that I found out about my Scottish heritage. Apparently I descend from the Gillespie and MacDonald clans, so if anyone knows how I can exploit this newfound information for untoward financial gain, please contact me immediately.
