Some people have never read the entire speech, given in regards to the Great Depression. A few lines: From Franklin Delano Roosevelt:

My background is medicine, but I am an artist at heart. Genealogy is just plain fun, and I find it fascinating. It's like a treasure hunt, mystery solving, and living history all at once, I don't know whether I would pursue it without WikiTree though. Rabidly anti-commercialism and anti-media/propaganda, I love the idea that this is our tree and we own it. I love the spirit of generosity and comradery here. After all, it is our tree, not my tree. That's the truth. Oh yes, and also important is the principle of accuracy and documentation. That's the scientist in me, evidence based and all that jazz. So ... Hello everyone. I am so happy to be part of this WikiTree. Thank you!
Some of the names I've found in my limbs and twigs:
