FamilyTreeCircles Newsletter 16 Sept 2012
This week I’m realizing that we are approaching some big FamilyTreeCircles milestones. We’ll soon be at 100,000 members, and 50,000 journals. We should reach those levels by the end of 2012.
And that’s not even considering the 28,000 comments and 27,000 private messages that flow through FamilyTreeCircles. Wow.
In this newsletter, I’d like to acknowledge the people who give so much to the FamilyTreeCircles community. Thanks to everyone who not only posts journals but are also so very welcoming and helpful to other members.

Week 38: Funny Ancestor Stories. Tell us a funny ancestor story that stands out in your mind. When did you first hear the story? Do other family members tell different versions? Does this tale play a large part in your family tree?
Create a journal and write about this week’s topic.

FamilyTreeCircles member Kerbent has an interesting mystery that she has written up in these two posts.

I’ll feature any developments in a future newsletter.

Mary Ferrett is my fourth great-grandmother she married Philip Upton Ebbott in 1804, in Trenglos, Cornwall thus becoming Mary Ebbott.
