Mine were all farmers. Even my grandmas. My mother's mother used to work in her family's farm and my father's mother would take care of the sheep. Great-grandpa was in WWII, but he didn't fight. He's still alive and functioning at 92 years old.
The real fun was at the time of my great-great-grandma's youth during WWI. Her brothers went to America. One came back, one -Hilmi- didn't. I'm still trying to find records about him. If you live in USA and have an ancestor named Hilmi who came from the Balkans or the Ottoman Empire around early 1900's, we may be related.
