The Lighter Side / Re: Unusual First Names

"why would anyone name their daughter Reservoir?"

Dunno.  Why would anyone name their daughter Circuncisión?  But I did know a woman of that name in Iquitos, fondly know as Doña Circo [which in itself is a little odd since circo means circus].

The Lighter Side / Re: Did our ancestors know their ancestry?

No doubt some people were interested in their forebears and some weren't, just like today.  To take a historical figure [not an ancestor of mine], Benjamin Franklin [b. 1706] wrote quite a bit about his ancestors and, when he went to England, he went to the ancestral village [Ecton, Northamptonshire] to research his paternal family and made contact with relatives still living there.

My own grandmother [b. 1881] was interested and I have found her information to be accurate.

[Note:  it says  "INFORMATION GIVEN WRONG BY THE NEIGHBOR" so who knows].
