Family History Friday: It’s a small world

I’ve made a page for to follow up on this post.  Earlier this year, I discovered that my best girlfriend’s husband descends from Margaret McKay and John Grant – which makes him  Mr R’s 4th cousin, twice removed. Margaret being his great-great-great-great grandmother Flora/Flory Mckay’s sister.

I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

    1. It all goes back to those two marriages in Scotland, in 1815! I would have to use a diagram to work it out, but I rely on my family history software to reveal the relationship. Thanks for commenting, M-R. 😀

    1. The removals work out when other generations intervene – which happens when an older child gets in an extra generational level than his/her youngest sibling. Women had kids over 20 – 30 year span then. I got hold of a generation cross reference chart from the internet when I first began. I’d never be able to get my head around it on my own!
