Someday in the past once I made contact with a distant cousin abroad, he despatched me a letter written between two cousins one in Australia & one within the US. This letter mentioned all of the members of the family who married whom & who their youngsters have been.

Its humorous as this was just about the identical checklist that had been created by my grandfather a few years in the past & was truly the beginnings of my family tree once I first began.

The fascinating factor was that it backed up lots of what my grandfather stated, but additionally added lots of little information about peoples personalities in addition to some fascinating tales that gave a tremendous perception into their household life. Similar to journeys to Oban for holidays in the course of the summer season months, shopping for garments in London & that two of the siblings owned a Kangaroo that they stored within the Summer time Home & how they thought their father had let it out! Sure!! a Kangaroo in Scotland, one thing that my Good friend & Colleague Christine Woodcock likes to giggle at!!

This letter additionally offered an fascinating perception into being members of the Church of Scotland & how strict it was. Sunday meals needed to be ready on a Saturday, youngsters weren’t allowed to play video games & didn’t dare whistle on the Sabbath & though they have been allowed to take walks, Sundays have been a day of worship.

So, keep in mind subsequent time you might be chatting to prolonged household to ask in the event that they know of any correspondence which will have been owned by our Ancestors, you simply by no means know what it’d comprise!
