Jill spends many hours researching Family History......

As a result, we now have more than 5,000 found ancestors on our family tree.

On her father's maternal line she
has gone back to the 11th century!

The photos of us both in "past times" will open
our Ancestry Blog

her father, Thomas Lawford, died in 1897)

Each of our four illustrious forebears
is programmed to
open an album of
 Ancestry Photos (Picasaweb)
in a new window.
