A P.S. on my Henry Menke post

In my post about my Great-Great Grandfather Henry Menke (here) I mentioned the movie "Nebraska" directed by Alexander Payne.  I saw the movie this weekend and I just wanted to say I loved it and I was very happy with the realistic characters (some were actually local citizens). There are some good laughs, and it's a wonderful story.  And the scenery is just like home! It IS home!!

I especially liked that there were a few scenes where learning family history is a part of the story.  They visit a cemetery, visit the "old homestead" and the son even learns something from the local newspaper editor.  I'm just sayin'... anyone with an interest in family history might enjoy this movie.
