Janet's thread

A weblog, mostly about knitting but other topics appear

Genealogy Compulsions May 30, 2018

my ancestor count – it’s over 14,000 now and I keep finding more – they are coming out of the woodwork

annotated list of immigrant ancestors – I am adding both names and annotations to this list also     I currently have identified over 300 English Immigrant

following up on clues – some surprising, some misleading, some leading to further treasures,

background reading – immersing myself in American and English history

p.s. not genealogy but knitting is another compulsive activity – here is my latest in my series of hats     IMG_1928   maybe I could try to find out how many of my ancestors were knitters
