Here is a short story of my family in America. I live in Murdock, Minnesota, population 303, in the same house my father was born. ( I might even be sleeping in the same room he was born in!)

The community was built around the railroad that passes through town.  If you listen closely, you will hear a train in the video.  It’s loud even inside the house.  I’ve heard the trains going through several times when I would call home to Murdock, no matter where in the world I was located!

My father’s family is mainly from Ireland, Scotland and Luxembourg. My mother’s family was from Germany and Prussia. My parented are now buried a short distance from the family house, along with a baby brother, and  many of my ancestors that were pioneers in Minnesota.

I live in central Minnesota in a farming community my father’s family has been a part of since the late 1800s, a colony of mainly poor Irish Catholics started by the late Archbishop John Ireland.  If I remember right, about 2,000 Catholic families were part of the colony in a few settlements in the area.

I read at the Catholic church in De Graff, Minnesota, the people were selected to come to the colony by Archbishop Ireland for the purpose of helping each other  and making a living. (I have to go back to read the description again!)

Also, I am related to many of the people in Murdock.  Oh, we are all related somehow to the pioneers from the colony.

Minnesota was poor in jobs, but rich in land when they arrived.

We are still poor in jobs in Minnesota, with about 175,000 still looking for job in the state, and I am one of them.

One more thing. If my father’s family did not come for the land in Minnesota, I would be saying, I am Canada!  My Irish family first moved to Canada, then to the United States, as did many Irish immigrants.  I’m sure we would be very proud to be in Canada.  Cheer to Canada!

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving Day?

I am thankful for receiving unemployment insurance benefits as I am currently a member of the 9 percent of unemployed workers in the United States. This is not a membership I am proud to be associated with, but know thinking positive is the best medicine for this workforce related illness.

Click to see my video posted on CNN iReporter on my thoughts on unemployment. It’s a vetted video by CNN, meaning it’s approved to run on CNN, really! Click to “recommend” it if you think my ideas are good.

If you are unemployed in Minnesota, and qualify for unemployment insurance, the form you complete each week is posted below. If you are not looking for work, you will not qualify.
