[I know it's been awhile. I just have a lot going on in my personal life right now. I guess I'm not really a true blogger because my first instinct isn't to rush out and tell the world...anyway, I've decided to do at least 2 genealogy/blog things. First, I'm going to start posting my weekly family events on Sunday. My family likes those and I seem to get the most comments on those as well. Second, I'm going to pick ONE family name and only work on it and only it - really! (trying to cure my GADD) So, that's it for now.]
November 15 ~ On this day in 1778, my 4x great-grandfather, George KIRK is baptized in St. Andrews, Fife, Scotland.
November 16 ~ On this day in 1746, my 5x great-grandfather, John GOURLAY is baptized in Ceres, Fife, Scotland. This day is also marked by the death, in Chevy Chase, Maryland in 1997, of my brother-in-law's grandmother Vestal [MATHIS] MOUSER.
November 17 ~ This day is marked by the death, in 1800 in Berne, Switzerland, of the man I believe to be my 6x great-grandfather, Abraham ZAUGG. Also on this day in 1838, my 3x great-grandparents James BENZIE and Mary BENZIE [this was her maiden name as well as her married name] were married in Oyne, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
November 20 ~ This day is marked by the death, in 1913 in Weld County, Colorado, of my great-great-grandaunt, Mary Ann [AUFLICK] SAUNDERS.
Wow ~ a whole week's worth of events and not ONE picture!! That's unusual for me.
