I guess you could say I'm a mixed-blood, with several blood lines in my research. It seems that I have over 355 kings in the family tree and they are from all over Europe, some from Persia as well. That mixed with my Cherokee blood.... oh, that's why I don't drink much, mix those bloods together and add alcohol..... oh no! I may have blue-blood lines, but I'm more of a blue collar guy. As a history buff, I love this stuff!

Hi all,  I'm new to this site and saw this group that may connect with me so I'm jumping in. I am a Mayflower member, Society of Colonial Wars member, SAR member and waiting for the final on Order of Founders and Patriots. I have been blessed with a great many ancestors that came to America in the 1600's and the history that goes with them. Salem Witch, Gov. Thomas Dudley, Col Samuel Appleton, William Story, Roger Williams ect. I've seen Dudley and Sargent listed in Royal Ancestry lines and also Appleton. Do I connect with anybody? Thanks

I'M NOT SURE IF MY LINE QUALIFIES FOR MEMBERSHIP HERE.  It is through my Grandma Boyd back to Sir William Boyd, (10th Lord Boyd 1st Earl of Kilmarnock 1638-1691) and then back to Walter FitzAlan (lst High Steward of Scotland 1105-1177) and even

farther back to Brittany.  The Boyds had many castles in Scotland including the "Dean Castle" that was still in Boyd possession through the mid 1750's and is now open to the public. The Boyd Family came into possession of the grounds of Dean Castle in 1316, when Sir Robert Boyd (Earl of Kilmarnock) was rewarded the lands of Kilmarnock and West Kilbride by King Robert (the Bruce) I for his services at the Battle of Bannockburn. It has strong historical connections with many people and events famous in Scottish history – BUT IS THIS LINE REALLY ROYALTY?

In reply to Barbara Kim Thigpen. Excuse my ignorance re the Rh factor. I did not realise this. Could someone please enlighten me. Thank you

Comment by Barbara Kim Thigpen on April 8, 2014 at 10:54pm

I have the Rh factor/blood is not negative; it's positive; so I think I must not be a blue~blood. However, my genetics are nothing but royal. My daughter is interested in maximizing our genetics, so I'm looking at single royal gentleman. It doesn't matter how much they have to offer in material wealth. We're interested in DNA. It is also desirable that he speaks English.

Medieval Cooking

For those who like to become immersed in the history & culture of the medieval period besides history books, Renaissance fairs, and biographies there are cookbooks which try to bring the “flavor” of living in the past.  Here are three books which may be of interest not only for their reading but also for the more adventurous provides recipes of times past.





SAVORING THE PAST. FRENCH KITCHEN AND TABLE FROM 1300 TO 1789, by Barbara Ketcham Wheaton.

Another more general book is FOOD IN HISTORY (revised), by Reay Tannahill. Tells you why/how certain food or dishes came about.

Good reading and good eats.
