Some of you may know of my interest in genealogy and won't be surprised that, despite my being anxious to attempt working on the church I showed you last time, I have gone off in a whole 'nother direction and I've been playing about with my Vessey/Vesey line of the family (my maternal grandmother side of the family). I had one of 'those' moments in family tree research where something totally unexpected fell into my lap and now I'm a bit obsessed. A very distant cousin who lives in the area where that particular branch of the family originated is an avid researcher (made much easier because he actually lives where most of it happened) and has so kindly shared all his information with me. Would you believe I now have a 2 1/2" stack of paper, printed double side, that's waiting for me to input into my family tree? Like I said - a moment - one that doesn't happen often! I have hours (& hours!!) of happy inputting into Ancestry ahead of me. So....as I said.....a tangent.
Hard to show pictures of inputting though!
So....in the spirit of having some pictures to show you, I thought I'd share what's appearing to be becoming a collection (albeit not through any fault of my own!). Altho' magpies don't look quite like ravens or crows, it seems that some people think they do!
