So I attended a lecture I didn’t think interested me…

In Deacon, General Genealogy, My Genealogy on May 2, 2010 at 5:50 AM

at the NGS (National Genealogical Society) Conference yesterday.  You see, I don’t have an Illegitimate births in my family tree.  Or so I thought.

My brick wall, my great-grandmother, Miss Elusive herself, well, I had two expert opinions on her case this week.  Yup, looks like she’s illegitimate.  This they got from the fact that her Father’s name and profession or left blank on her marriage certificate (this is in Wales).  So suddenly, a session I had completely discounted as of interest to me, became very interesting indeed!  Funny how quickly we family historians can change our minds and find ourselves learning a subject we never thought we would.  Love it!!
