10. Like nolabear, a lot of preachers who got into other people's business

Mostly on my Mom's side of the family. A lot of them were known for starting churches, as far as I can figure out because they were thrown out of the churches they had been members of. One preacher started four or five churches in the same small county in Alabama. Another is noted for not only starting churches, but building them, too.

On my Dad's side many of my ancestors were voracious readers no matter how little formal schooling they had. Some were such dedicated readers it was noted in their obituaries or in the little biographies my grandmother wrote on the family members she could gather enough information for. They also believed in educating the women of the family when possible - my great great grandfather left money for both his granddaughters to go to college and they both graduated from college.

Fortunately the trait of reading is the one I inherited!
