Synchronicity experience? ...Or is it a message from my dad:
By Layne Dalfen
This morning, February 13, 2011.
Last week I watched a TV show called Where Do I Come From? It's a new show Lisa Kudrow produces where TV and movie stars work through ancestry.com to discover their roots. I have been thinking about visiting ancestry.com but it wasn't until this morning that I finally took a peek. I ran a find on my late father, Joseph Dalfen z'l. It wasn't long before I found him. I didn't find him under the name of Joseph though. he was listed as Jacob. I knew his name was actually Jacob Joseph. He preferred his middle name and in fact I didn't even learn his first name was Jacob until I was 10 or 11 years old.
Well, not only did I find my dad listed there, but I was able to see the actual entry document when he landed in Canada! He traveled here on the SS Montcalm that left Liverpool, England on February 5, 1932. He arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia on FEBRUARY 13TH!! I was sitting there rooted to the spot.
Of all the days of the year.....what are the chances? I found my dad's record of arrival 79 years ago to the day.
No. I don't think that's a coincidence. It was a little hello from my Dad, z'l.
