My next post is up at Family Tree Firsts, and you can read it here.
For those of you following this blog, you can tell when I wrote it. Yep, in the middle of my nasty fight with bronchitis. Yuck! However, not being able to sleep, or lay down, appears to have some good side affects.
I realized when I was reading the post that I didn't include the link to the family tree I found. Oops! Well, for my future reference, and so you can go and see it for yourself, check it out here. I have also been in touch with the woman who created it. She has been very helpful and extremely friendly. Very happy to have found someone willing to answer my questions and be willing to share with me.
Of course, my mother-in-law is just happy to know the family rumors that they are from Cornwall are turning out to be possibly true. One more place to go on my next trip overseas!
Due to my vacation, I am still in the process of analysing and going through the information from the website and a few extra bits that she has to sent me. Including an article about Xantippe and her husband, Dr. James M. Burt, which was very informative. It has presented me with some conflicting information to what my husband's grandmother wrote which means I have some correspondence to write.
