A genealogy friend, Wes and I corresponded quite a bit in the fall, before I began my blog. Recently he found me via the blog, which I thought was pretty nice. He informed me that one of our ancestors, John Holmes has a DAR Chapter named after him and it is located in Minnesota. John Holmes was my 6th great-grandfather.
Hummer of Branching Out Through the Years, informed me that we share the same ancestors: James Fitch and Priscilla Mason. And, Wendy of New England Genealogy shares the direct oldest line to my Jonathan Poole.
At long last, my header photo is done correctly. Since the very beginning, I haven't been able to insert the photo correctly. Thanks to Apple of Apple's Tree, she resized it for me, and this isn't the first time she has helped me.
Greta of Greta's Genealogy Bog mentioned in her Follow Friday for March 26th, my piece in “Sentimental Sunday – My First Job.” Thank you Greta. Follow-up, if you go to Greta's blog, she also wrote about her first job.
