One of my family legends is that I am a direct decendent of Mary Stuart of Scotland (Queen of Scots). Haven’t been able to trace back to Scotland yet, but am still looking.

This was “handed down” info.

Although the Duke was somewhat a “dandy”, I take this info with a grain of salt.

Would be cool to prove though ;)

They do keep us guessing!

And remember many many people did not know how to read or write (and many still don’t) so they simply said their name and someone wrote down what they heard. I have a court document for one of my ancestors in 1623 (yeah, one of the ornery ones) and the scribe spelled his name 4 different ways in the same document! Don’t give up hope OR your dream!

When Ms. Croasmun finally solves an ancestry mystery, write about it. Until then, it’s not too interesting.

It has been an invaluable resource to me for my research!

Hope this link is as helpful to you as it has been for me!
