I've been a little (OK, a LOT) lax with this lately and need to get started up again. I really like this idea as it puts me back in touch with ancestors I sometime forget ~ people not in my direct line.
April 12, 1840 ~ My great-great-grand Uncle William RITCHIE was born in Blebo Craig, Fife, Scotland. An exciting note about this relative is that I've just had a contact from someone still living in Scotland whose husband is a direct descendant of William. YEAH!!
April 15, 1879 ~ My nieces' & nephew's great-great Grandfather, the Reverend Enoch Melvin MOUSER was born in Magnolia, Arkansas.
April 16, 1919 ~ My great-great Grandmother, Hellen LUMSDEN died in Inverurie, Scotland. I posted her gravestone previously here.
April 18, 1823 ~ Anna SCHENK, who I believe to be my 5th great Grandmother, died in Langnau, Berne, Switzerland.
