So That's Where I Get It From

March 24 – Women’s History Month – Fearless Females

Once again I have gotten a little behind with this series.  I’m having a few problems with my internet connection.  It seems to be ok for a while then disappears altogether or it’s just so very slow – much slower than it used to be before we got broadband!!  I’m hoping it will hold out for a bit tonight so I can get the rest of this series done.  As it’s for March I shouldn’t be doing it in April!

March 24  –  Do you share any physical resemblance or personality trait with one of your female ancestors? Who? What is it?

Well my nose is that of my dear Dad’s and my ways are very like his were too but of course as this is about our female ancestors I can’t really discuss my likeness to my Dad!

My maternal grandmother Lucy Sinclair nee Dartnell (1883 – 1984) had a habit of rubbing her knee without really realising she was doing it.  My dear Mum also had the same habit which she obviously inherited from her mother and I too have this habit.  It is completely subconscious.  I do it without realising it and suddenly become aware that I am doing it.  So it has followed on from my dear Gran, to my dear Mum and to me.  Gran was a Dartnell and her mother was a Dickens. 

So who did Gran get this habit from?  I’ve yet to discover the answer to that.
