Just thought I'd let those who have been watching the FMP series know about the final episode on tonight.
In this week's episode Edward Coode, Nathalia Cross and Michael Frith uncover surprising information that connects their ancestors to the Mordaunt Divorce Scandal.
I have to admit that I hadn't heard of this before, but now having researched it a little, it makes for a fascinating piece of history. You can check out the trailer here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uVjd9...layer_embedded
After having no Smart Matches show up for one branch of my ancestor tree (last name McCabe), I tried the search engine for Family Websites found through the Community tab. Hundreds of websites named McCabe appeared, but I need a strategy for sorting through them. Is there a way to tell the size of the site and if they are Premium members (like the crown icons in Smart Matches)? Most of the sites are at least Mixed with security settings, so I cannot access any information to see if they will be useful. The date created is shown, but that is of little use other than indicating which sites are too new to have much research.
If you could go back in time and ask your ancestors questions, what would you want to know about them? You can be as specific as you want in regards to particular ancestors or if you'd ask all your ancestors the same general questions.
I, for example, would ask one of my great-great-great grandmothers what it was like to be convicted as a witch and how did she end up breaking out of prison and disappearing. Or my great-grandfather why he left Germany? And I'd most definitely ask all of my ancestors what they were passionate about.
Hello guys. I have always wanted to know the name of my great-great grandmother. I was told she was part indian from Dequincy, Lousiana. My grandmother was name Bessie Mae Robertson and she was born Sept. 5, 1914 or 1915. She died when I was 16 years old (1996). If anyone can find my grandmother's info, please reply back.
Searching for any information on these familys. All to believed born and lived in or around the Baltimore, Md. Area. The furthest back i have is Issac Henry Willing born 1849, married Mary C. Willing, born 1859. They had 3 children that i know of, one be Alonzo Frank Willing 1876-1943. Also looking for ancestors of the Henderson & Sinclair familys.
see my initial posting for information, found that these names could possibly be variations of Pahides as P in greek is R in english.
Rula or Roula
Socreates would be her fathers name, do not really know that Julie is Rula or Roula in greek.
Looking for the PAHIDES family:
Looking for the Pahides family..my Aunt Jacqueline is looking for her family that she has never met. She is not out to gain anything just the connection. Just to meet her family. Her half sisters name is Rula (julie??) Pahides, she believes her Fathers name was Socreates Pahides. My Aunts mothers name was Mary Minerva Bowers. She knows they resided in the Pennsylvania. Philadelphia area, United States. She was approached many years ago by an unknown woman who asked her for her name, the woman had a young girl with her who looked exactly like my Aunt. When my Aunt told the unknown woman her name the woman left and my Aunt never heard from nor saw this person ever again.Even if there were a promised marriage between my Aunts Father and someone else this should not have been a reason to never allow my Aunt access to her family. We all need to know where we come from and our familys history and maybe any genetic health issues. Rula (Julie in greek??) would be about 55 today. Please if anyone knows of this family contact me as soon as possible Thank You for your time and patience Sincerely Lisa A Cincotti
