My DNA (E-V13) is from the Balkans and shows in Wales. Roman auxillaries recruited in the Balkans were sent to Wales in the first century AD. My paper trail leads to Lincolnshire, England.

Genealogy Conferences Duel Positions
I read Janet H. comments recently and it was a very interesting and brought to mind lots of thoughts.
So I waited a few days until I could get them put in smoothly in my mind.

The deadline for submission is June 1st,…Continue

You will remember in 2006 the Government in it's infinite wisdom decided to give people the option of "opting out" of having their census records released in 92 years. A truly nightmarish thought for any…Continue

I just came off the Facebook page that is assisting people to inter link with the lost threads of their lives or their deceased familes lives. They are finding and sharing: scraps of photos, crochet work, quilting, photo albums, wedding pictures, Graduation shots, family scenes, picnic and fun events.
Since a quilt shop was destroyed and she held many quilts on display, I noticed in the talks that some were aware that there was a Quilt Shop damaged. Others just found them and had…Continue
