Randy Seaver over at GeneaMusings has come up with another great Saturday Night Fun challenge.
The genealogy world was reminded (again) of how time flies, relatively speaking, by the news that there are two living grandchildren of President John Tyler (1790-1862). This past week there was theRobert Krulwich blog post about persons knowing people who knew famous people long ago.
For this week’s mission (should you decide to accept it), I want you to:
1) Using your ancestral lines, how far back in time can you go with two degrees of separation? That means “you knew an ancestor, who knew another ancestor.” When was that second ancestor born?
2) Tell us in a blog post of your own, in a comment to this blog post, in a status line on Facebook or a stream post on Google Plus.
The Taylor’s Civil War was written by Lowell F. Volk. It is a great book that has the Civil Was as its background, but there is much more to the story line than the war.
Thoughts of my Day are occasional blogs I will write telling my thoughts and feelings for that day.
