Getting to know me

February 13, 2017

Recently fellow geneablogger, GeniAus posted a ‘getting to know me’ Meme that came to her via other geneabloggers.  As I’ve mentioned previously, I am a sucker for a meme, so how could I possibly resist.  I really enjoyed getting to know Geniaus through reading her meme

So here is mine for anyone who would like to get to know me better.

1. Who are you named after? – I was named after Hollywood movie actress Jennifer Jones, who was very popular at the time I was born.
