Memorial Day 2014

Its time to return to writing in a new blog with a new focus. And appropriately we begin on Memorial Day, when we honor those who served and continue to serve when our nation called.

So many Pummells

I have discovered an awful lot of Pummells in the USA, but so far they do not appear to be connected to my family. If there are any of you out there who can trace back to 1800's in Hampstead Norris (Norreys) in Berkshire, England, you could be mine! Please get back to  me. I have managed to go back to 1700, so far, by the way!
