On This Day in NOVEMBER .....
« on: Thursday 08 November 12 18:07 GMT (UK) »
Four days ago, on November 5th, it was the 126th anniversary of my great uncle Ernest Cooper Smith's birth.
On November 6th, it was my great-great grandmother, Jane Raitt's 163rd birthday.
Yesterday, November 7th, was the 270th anniversary of the marriage of my 6 x great grandparents, James Martin and Margaret Seymour.
Today, November 8th is the 95th anniversary of Ernest Cooper Smith's death at Passchendaele.


I reckon that I could fill up most of the calendar with the BMDs of my ancestors but it would be more fun if we all did it together, so come on - let's see if we can have at least one person's life celebrated for every day of the year.

Over to you.................

I think we can count our own birthdays and those of our offspring. But it would be good if we could manage to do it on the actual day, so that there is always someone being remembered.

I have a few lined up for the rest of November so, providing I'm able to be online on those days, I'll give them each their own turn.

Its my Grand-aunt Annies 139th birthday today .... never been able to find her death.   

She was Annie Hoare, and lived in Risca, Mon, and had lots of children who must have had descendents ....

I did briefly consider putting an advert in a Risca local paper "Are there any Hoares in Risca" ..... but thought it might be misunderstood !

I don't have a proper one for 9th November so I'll just celebrate the fact that my grandson is five months old today. :)
