    Public education at that time wasn't very good, either. If your family wasn't wealthy, the chances of you being educated and trying your chances like you can in present day were pretty much non-existent. Really - don't be ashamed. Your family were survivors. You probably act nothing like them, and it's highly likely because you don't share their reasons to do what they might have felt they had to do to get by in a harshly capitalistic world.

    A part of my families branch moved to the states (brother of my great grandfather), and they're running gas companies over their in SF and also are all entrepeneurs and businessmen. :P

    ha ha ha ...like business men and "entepreneurs" of the gilded age weren't thieves themselves - personally, I'd be more ashamed to find out that my great-great grandpappy was a robber baron
