I've decided to take the lead of Janelle Collins in her first blog post titled, Just starting out with the ancestor list, so many of them!!, and share some of the names of my ancestors in the hope that you and I may be able to help each other in our family research.
Here is my first attempt to share a bunch of names of some of my long-time-dead and not-so-long-dead ancestors with you, along with a few pics. If you recognise any of them, I'd love to hear from you. Let my ancestors talk to your ancestors, through this blog:)
Below are a list of some of my English ancestors who were living, marrying, working, dying in Winterborne Whitechurch in Dorset. Some some of them went off to live in Holywell, Flintshire in Wales around 1865 and some of these migrated to Australia:
Joseph Kingsbury (born 1789ish, Winterborne Whitechurch, Dorset - died 1866, Dorset County Hospital Holy Trinity Dorchester)
George Kingsbury (born 1873, Holywell, Flintshire, Wales - died 1938 in Flintshire, Wales)
Mary Kingsbury (born 1875, Holywell, Flintshire, Wales)
Louisa Kingsbury (born c. 1875, Holywell, Flintshire, Wales)
Sarah Kingsbury (born 1880, Holywell, Flintshire, Wales - died 1880, Holywell, Flintshire, Wales)
So, do you think any of your dead ancestors spoke to any of my dead ancestors? Did they cross paths, do you think? Did they share a bus seat, a tram seat or a footpath? I can't help but wonder.
