I heard from my cousin Maureen this evening. I am absolutely delighted for her as she appears to be going into new realms of family history research. She has managed to take her maternal side of the family waaaaaaay back to a 25 x great grandfather! Isn’t that wonderful! I don’t think I have come across anyone managing to get back that far.
Maureen tells me that that family came from Normandy and that one of them actually fought in the first Crusade.
So, she has some very interesting history to delve into there and I wonder how much further back she will be able to go. Where do you start delving into Normandy and the Crusades!! I have suggested to Maureen that maybe she should start a blog into her research on her 25 x great grandfather and let us know what she discovers. I am thrilled for her, this is so exciting.
