Caren, are you going to attend the seminare in Tacoma on May 7, at LaQuinta Suites.  Laure Prescott is the speaker.

If so, perhaps we could actually meet in person.  Maureen

Heather: Ok I need your email address so I can send you the invite to get in and add your line.
Comment by Heather Christa Justice on April 21, 2011 at 4:49pm

Caren, what you told Alexandra about setting something up so she can add her line, well, that's what I was needing before. I still need something set up.

Thank you

James: I see how this could happen. Several trees and sources indicate that John Botetourt was Edward's illigitamate son.
Comment by Maureen MacDonald on April 20, 2011 at 6:15pm

Am just starting the book When Christ and his Saints Slept by Sharon Kay Penman.  It is the first in the trilogy of the Plantagenet Family.  It deals with King Henry I and his dau. Maude. Penman also has a book titled the Devil's Brood which deals with 'our' Henry II.  Will let you know about it.

 Her book The Sunne in Spendor, about Edward IV and Richard the third was very interesting and gave me great insight into that time period

Just want to say hi. Been busy. Talk again soon.

Heather.

Pray for us to have rain here in OK.

Comment by James P. LaLone on April 20, 2011 at 7:15am

Caren,

On your tribalpages you have John BOTETOURTE as a s/o of Edward PLANTAGENET, this is apparently in error, see http://www.geneajourney.com/botetrt.html, note "a".
