How exciting to See GenealogyWise grow in just a few days

Posted on July 9, 2009 at 9:00pm 2 Comments

Cindy, there was a text box in which you could add text or photo or other things. I clicked the camera icon and it took me through the steps to add a picture. Then I edited that box again and added the text naming the people below the picture.

Thank Cindy must say it took me quite a while to find it but when I saw it I thought it was most appropriate. I always describe my Hobby as like doing a Jigsaw Puzzle. I was actually looking for a comic figure of a femail.

I'm descended from and related to the Welsh/Welch families that came in Jamaica, I believe in the early 1700s, after the British conquered Jamaica from the Spaniards in 1655.
