Travelling the GENE ALOGY TRAIL

Journal by edmondsallan

I thought the journal written about genealogy was excellent

The maoris use to take a very brilliant young child and place him with a master who taught hm all he had been taught about the ancestry and other important affairs of his tribe . when he died The pupil took over and another gifted child was selected to do the same all over again
The same happened in the Isle of White- Uk . they also selected a gifted person to remember all ancestry which was passed onto them by another master who had been taught the same way I believe she was last one of these specially selected people died not long ago - She was
( 92 ) ill for only two days and they say her mind was clear to the end
My viking ancestors sailed to the Isle of White and aftrer a period of time sailed to the wales coast to a place called " Bangor "They finally after some years fought heir way to the Wales border at Monmouthshire
and england . one of our married ancestery couples - Walked over the main street to England and found work Yes folks - till this day the border between the two countries is in the middle of the main street
That married Couple in 1411 had ( 6 ) children - ( 4 ) in England with their names spelt the English way and the two younger ones spelt the welch way when they returned to wales . A bit tricky to follow -The English spelling is what is used today . of interest our Persian - BC / Hungarian / Switzerland / German / Danish / Norwegian
/ Welch / English name has been changed ( 8 ) times. I enjoyed every minute following that ancestral trail . When I started We did not have computers . I agree with our member when she says . And now we have computers-a piece of cake

Till we meet again -Regards - edmondsallan
