We don't know when our name came into being or how some distant ancestor acquired it. We don't understand our name at all, we don't know its history and yet we bear it with exalted fidelity, we merge with it, we like it, we are ridiculously proud of it as if we had thought it … Continue reading The Life Of Jane Smith, Through Documentation, 1815-1855
The Greens Paternal Family History
The Life Of William Charles Williams 1807-1881
What I love about genealogy is, it leads you down paths walked by not only your ancestors but many others incredible human beings.
