Way Back In Time January 14, 2016

Filed under: Ancestors,Borland Hall Norfolk,Genealogy — Janet @ 7:06 pm

I’ve been working on my genealogy.  Some ancestors I’ve been able to trace back to the 1400’s and even further.  This is intriguing.  How far back in time can I go with names and dates?

My latest find is a photograph of Boyland Hall in Norfolk England.  My 14th Great Grandmother Margaret Barton Blennerhassett was born there in 1448.  There is a question regarding the Hall – was it demolished in 1947?

Boyland Hall demolished 1947?  Boyland Hall

    I continue to be amazed that you can go back this far. How do you do it?

    The ancestors I have found so far are all from the British Isles where record keeping has been an important part of the social fabric.
