Default Take one 3xG-Grandparent week 14 11 - 17 Feb 2011

This week, we are focussing on your mother's father's father's mother's mother.

If you want to take part, just start a new thread on this board and put your 3x-great-grandmother's name in the Title. If you don't know her name then put whatever you like in the title!

Copy the following form and fill in the answers that you already have, then over the course of the next week you try to fill in the blanks and everyone else helps you. If you're lucky enough to have all the information already, then you can still post it up if you want, so that search engines can pick it up.

Can you fill in all of the following information about that person:

Name - "official" name and what they were known as
Date and place of birth
Names of parents
Date and place of baptism - if applicable
Details of each of his or her marriages - if any
Occupation(s) - if any
Addresses where they lived (including county if in UK) - and please list which censuses you have or haven't found him/her on (if s/he lived in census times!).
Date, place and cause of death
Date and place of burial.
Details of will / administration of their estate - if applicable
Memorial inscription - if any


Adoptive or step-3x-great-grandparents welcome! Also you may post up threads for both your own ancestor and your OH's ancestor.

Oops, I posted the wrong person up (my 2x-g-grandmother) on my own thread! It should have been her mother! I'll post the right one up in a while...

I read your post, Kate, and then it disappeared! I wondered what had happened to it!

AAAH! No-one has yet spotted my mistake!

My Elizabeth Andrew isn't Elizabeth at all! She is Mary!
I must have confused her with my side of the tree, as I have an ancestor called Elizabeth Andrew, whilst OH has Mary Andrew!

All the other details are correct.

Kate, please would you amend the title to read "Mary Andrew". Thanks.

done

Thanks. I have now found the marriage. It helps to look again so could you ammend my thread title to Rhoda George. back another generation with a matching baptism on family search.
