Our Ancestors of Past

Could this of been Your Ancestors of the Depression Years 29 Oct 1929-1939 in America...

...or the Great Famine/the Great Hunger was a period of mass starvation, disease 1845-1852 Ireland...

...and Migrations from across the Pond

Other periods in History possibly never taught in Schools...of how Our Ancestor's survived, from around the world, even in, at or near America's back-door, that not even a wall would have prevented.

1981-1991: Second measles outbreak - another outbreak of measles in 2014 and 2015.

1916-1955: The peak of polio - The first major polio epidemic in the United States occurred in 1916 and reached its peak in 1952.  Of the 57,628 reported cases, there were 3,145 deaths.

1921-1925: Diphtheria epidemic - peaked in 1921, with 206,000 cases.

1918: “Spanish flu” - actually doesn’t come from Spain.  It circulates the globe annually, but seriously affected the United States in 1918.  The flu would return later in 1957 as the “Asian flu” and cause nearly 70,000 deaths before a vaccine became available.

1906-1907: “Typhoid Mary” - New York...Mary Mallon, often referred to as “Typhoid Mary,” spread the virus to about 122 New Yorkers during her time as a cook on an estate and in a hospital unit.  About five of those 122 New Yorkers passed away from the virus.  Annually, 10,771 people passed away from typhoid fever.

1858: Scarlet fever also came in waves - 95 percent of people who caught the virus were children.

1832-1866: Cholera in three waves - The pandemic began in India, and swiftly spread across the globe through trade routes.  New York City was usually the first city to feel the impact.

1633-1634: Smallpox from European settlers

1793: Yellow fever from the Caribbean

1346-1353: Europe, Asia and North Africa known as the Black Death - molecular evidence of the orientalis strain of Yersinia pestis biovar, the organism responsible for bubonic plague. 

Most every American descends from Immigrants, a word many may dislike to be or have been titled.  

Our Ancestor's Migrated within their Home Country and surrounding Lands...came many Hardships.

Their History is important of Survival and How We Are Here Today...this too should never be forgotten.
