This Sunday my mother’s family had a reunion, and to make this one even better the whole thing had a genealogy purpose. Now I personally have about a 5-10 minute threshold for genealogy things, so after I learned that they had traced my mother’s, father’s family back to the 1840 in Lithuania I left. Eventually my cousin Aliza showed me her potter’s wheel. Now I had always wanted to use a potter’s wheel, so she gave me a lesson. The pictures below don’t really need an explanation.
