Mony a sair darg we twa hae wrought,
An wi’ the weary warl’ fought!
An mony an anxious day I thought
We would be beat!
Yet here to crazy age we’re brought,
Wi something yet.
A day late maybe and not strictly relevant to the Kahn family, but I like this verse from Burns’ poem and in a small way it is appropriate. We haven’t been beaten and we’ve ended up the year ‘wi’ something yet,’ details of which have been reported in previous posts so do not bear being repeated here.
Annoyingly, Victor’s siblings are still hiding, but the more I think about the circumstances, the more I’m convinced he was not an only child. So what happened to his brothers and sisters? That’s the question to answer in 2012; that will be the focus of my genealogical year.
Thanks to all those who have helped us during 2011 and we wish you a very contented, healthy and prosperous 2012. (AK).
