RMS Lusitania was at one time the world's biggest ship and could maintain a speed of 25 knots thanks to her turbine engines. She was torpedoed by a German U-Boat in 1915 and 1198 lives (out of a total of 1,959 passengers) were lost. Shown here is Ailsa Georgina Booth who lost her life along with her father and brother during the sinking.

I want to build a place where my son can meet his great-grandparents. My grandmother Marian Joyce (Benning) Kroetch always wanted to meet her great-grandchildren, but she died just a handful of years before my son's birth. So while she didn't have the opportunity to meet him, at least he will be able to know her. For more information about what we're building see About AncientFaces.

My father's side is full blood Sicilian and my mother's side is a combination of Welsh, Scottish, German and a few other European cultures. One of my more colorful (ahem black sheep) family members came over on the Mayflower. He was among the first to be hanged in the New World for a criminal offense he made while onboard the ship.
