    1. Thank you. There are some parts of it written in very old English and what appears to be Latin (or maybe Gaelic). I have the feeling that Google Translate is going to be used quite often for this one. It will be an adventure. :)

      I visited (and followed) your blog. Your book looks like an interesting choice, too.

      I hope that you have a great weekend. :)

  3. Great post and thanks for sharing!!!!!!

  4. Sounds fascinating!! Happy Sunday!

    1. Thank you. I think it is, too, most especially because it covers a part of my family's history. I love family history research. :)

      Have a blessed weekend!
