I am on vacation and my Mom's cousins and I are on a genealogical field trip. You see, I love searching my roots as much as my garden or decorating.
So I am in Kentucky!
I have not had to read what my friends are up to with their blogs.
We were successful yesterday. Last year I found online a excerpt of a will from my 5th great grandfather, and the list of his children was my 4th great grandmother Mildred Snyder with her married name as I expected BUT also listed was Jane Devers. She also is a Great Grandmother of mine and we had no idea about her lineage! Could it be?? I was convinced!
Well yesterday we got the will and it listed them as Owen Snyder and wife Mildred and HB Devers and wife Jane. I had never seen a will where it listed the husbands of the children..but hey! it worked for me!
Do you think my Great Great Grandparents realized they had the same Great Grandparents??
Doing prep research
I think we went through every book in the Lexington library!!
Break for lunch Stella Deli. All the food was fresh from local growers
Susan enjoyed the rhubarb lavender soda!
Now some shopping, I got a pink ornament and vintage Santa cupcake picks.
On to more adventures today, hope to get some antique shopping in! But still tracking down dead relatives as my husband refers to them!
Hope you all have a great day!
