England, here we come!
"Remember Me - a Genealogy Journal" is heading to Oxford, England for a week of fun in the...well...rain and cold! Much more fun than that, we'll visit with friends from several military moves ago. At this point, we each have two children (!) and have aged nearly 10 years (!!). Here's to hoping we still look the same!
With better planning, I really could have made this a fantastic genealogy trip. The fact is...the places we'd like to visit are over 2 1/2 hours driving distance from our rental cottage in Oxford. Sans kids, this would have been doable. BUT - with two under the age of 5, and one of them still consistently napping, we'll take a more conservative approach. Before we move away from Europe, I'd love to return to visit Dorset (TREVETT family) and Thirsk, Yorkshire (SMITH family). I know that many, many more of my ancestors are from the UK. Identifying their actual birth places is on the horizon for future research.
Have a wonderful week, everyone!
More when we return!
