Ancestral Places Geneameme

August 5, 2017

Fellow Geneablogger Alona from Lonetester HQ has challenged us to another Geneameme, and as usual, I can’t resist joining in the fun

From Alona’s blog: ‘As family historians we come across all sorts of interesting people and places during our research. In this geneameme I wanted to focus on the places. The countries, the states, the counties or provinces, as well as the parishes, the towns and villages. Our ancestors have a connection to these places.
What places do your ancestors come from?’

  1. I could’t get X either (had two different ones for Q!). Do you have an Elias Jones from Northern Wales in your family anywhere? He eludes me!

    • I do wish we shared Jones ancestors Sharon. But unfortunately not. My Jones family came from London. My Taylor’s were from Wales
