Welcome to Jennifer!

This is a follow-up post to last week’s Filling In Some Gaps post; it’s just to say thank you to Jennifer, who is my great uncle William’s great grand daughter; it’s beyond me to work out the actual relationship, but I think it’s second cousin removed once or twice!

But more importantly than degrees of relationship, it’s been great to meet a fellow descendant of Old William and Annie, and one who’s also interested in our family history; it’s times like this that make the work of tracing your family history and blogging about it so worthwhile!

Not only have both of our family trees been expanded by the meeting, we’ve made a new connection from an old one, and I am so happy that we have, as I know my cousin Barbs is – it’s an exciting chasing down of historical info, but its wonderful to meet great people and find out you’re related!
