Default Take one 2xGreat-Grandparent week 16 7 - 13 May 2010

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

If you want to take part, just start a new thread on this board and put your 2x-great-grandfather's name in the Title. If you don't know his 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. Or use your partner's 2x-great-grandfather instead.

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.
Date, place and cause of death
Date and place of burial / cremation.
Details of will / administration of their estate - if applicable
Memorial inscription - if any


Adoptive or step-2x-great-grandparents welcome!
Can each person please just post up one thread - either your own 2x-great-grandparent or your partner's.

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.

Sorry, Katarzyna, this board is closed to new threads because we're doing Take One Great-Grandparent now.
