Just thought I'd let those who have been watching the FMP series know about the final episode on tonight.
In this week's episode Edward Coode, Nathalia Cross and Michael Frith uncover surprising information that connects their ancestors to the Mordaunt Divorce Scandal.
I have to admit that I hadn't heard of this before, but now having researched it a little, it makes for a fascinating piece of history. You can check out the trailer here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVjd9...layer_embedded
After having no Smart Matches show up for one branch of my ancestor tree (last name McCabe), I tried the search engine for Family Websites found through the Community tab. Hundreds of websites named McCabe appeared, but I need a strategy for sorting through them. Is there a way to tell the size of the site and if they are Premium members (like the crown icons in Smart Matches)? Most of the sites are at least Mixed with security settings, so I cannot access any information to see if they will be useful. The date created is shown, but that is of little use other than indicating which sites are too new to have much research.
If you could go back in time and ask your ancestors questions, what would you want to know about them? You can be as specific as you want in regards to particular ancestors or if you'd ask all your ancestors the same general questions.
I, for example, would ask one of my great-great-great grandmothers what it was like to be convicted as a witch and how did she end up breaking out of prison and disappearing. Or my great-grandfather why he left Germany? And I'd most definitely ask all of my ancestors what they were passionate about.
Hello guys. I have always wanted to know the name of my great-great grandmother. I was told she was part indian from Dequincy, Lousiana. My grandmother was name Bessie Mae Robertson and she was born Sept. 5, 1914 or 1915. She died when I was 16 years old (1996). If anyone can find my grandmother's info, please reply back.
If so, can you tell me if Robertson was your grandmother's married name or her birth name? Did she die in Louisiana? What was the name of your grandmother's husband? This information would help me find her parents if you are still searching for this information.
Searching for any information on these familys. All to believed born and lived in or around the Baltimore, Md. Area. The furthest back i have is Issac Henry Willing born 1849, married Mary C. Willing, born 1859. They had 3 children that i know of, one be Alonzo Frank Willing 1876-1943. Also looking for ancestors of the Henderson & Sinclair familys.
