Does she look Eastern European?  Don’t her sweaters look marvelous?  I can’t recall where I found this photo.  Maybe a reader can help me.  The picture was in a collection of about 20 knitters, each from a different part of the world.


Sen Miller – Immigrant Ancestor

In documenting and searching for my ancestors I have yet to find Sen Miller who came to Boston from Scotland in about 1660.  He is the first ancestor I “met” way back about 70 years ago.  He was the first entry in one of the two blue genealogical record books which we had in the glass-doored bookcase in our family home in Belmont.  These 2 books were full of information compiled by my paternal grandmother in the 1920’s.  One book was for the Millers.  The other was for the Murdocks.  I distinctly remember Sen Miller as the first name in the Miller book.  Why haven’t I Andrea Doria found him again through Ancestry.com?
