Hot news from the genealogy expert of the family.Thats Cousin Donna by the way.
With some help from some fellow history seekers she has now traced one line of our family tree back to the year 970.How amazing is that!
The year 970 sees us in France with the Jocelyn line coming over the water to England in the 1100's. They settled in two main areas Devon and Essex. So I can truly call myself an Essex girl. Not that there was any doubt in that.
I would love to be able to spend some time with her working on this and starting up some research of my own on my Dads family and also the Sargeant line but circumstances are against us at the moment. Small children, work etc. Since she has printer issues atm she is hand copying the tree and is a bit bogged down in the 15th and 16th century where everyone seems to have at least 10 children.
