My MacDonald's did the same thing and then, in the early 1800's mine went to Nova Scotia where he and his sons (they born in NS) were in the 84th reg from Nova Scotia during the American Revolutionary War.<br /> I am not a genealogist by profession but have been doing mine and others for 70 years now and I found so many of the professionals don't know a damn thing about tracing families.<br /> On one of your shows you did a Dickinson and boy you were really wrong. I have my Dickinson's back to the 700's and on up to my ggreatgrandmother.<br /> And there were 3 brothers who came to the USA in the early 1600's Nathaniel, Thomas and my John.</p> Are You Related to Jimmy Carter? - Silas David Douglas http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2011/09/Are-You-Related-to-Jimmy-Carter.html#c74496 urn:md5:507d840c923d51b8cdb6596124327bec Fri, 27 Mar 2015 01:59:09 +0100 Silas David Douglas <p>According to President Jimmy Carter's family tree, one of his ancestors, Littleberry Walker Carter, came from the Line of Jacob Carter. Jacob Carter had a daughter named Mary Carter who married Isham Walker, and they had a son named Littleberry Walker, who was born in Colleton County, SC around 1767. My mother came from the Line of Isham and Liitleberry Walker. My mother was Gladys "Walker" Douglas born May 8, 1926 in Brantley County, GA, daughter of Riley Walker Sr. and Minnie Vera Crews. My mother passed away July 10, 1991. So I reckon I am kin to President Jimmy Carter.</p> Are You Related to Lillian Gish? - earl debiew http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2013/10/Are-You-Related-to-Lillian-Gish.html#c74492 urn:md5:602a63a85ce3947352e0b522164e9575 Thu, 26 Mar 2015 23:25:09 +0100 earl debiew <p>Love her I also have 6 window cards inc. the feature card from her lost movie The Great Love in exc cond.</p> Are You Related to Bonnie Parker? - Jeff Payne http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2012/10/Are-You-Related-to-Bonnie-Parker.html#c74484 urn:md5:4a38a62749f60370fdc040d952c6cfbe Thu, 26 Mar 2015 18:55:34 +0100 Jeff Payne <p>My stepmother has the Parker family bible with Bonnie's name in it and my Great Aunt married Robert Parker who was a like first or second cousins to Bonnie.</p> Are You Related to Bonnie Parker? - scott parker http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2012/10/Are-You-Related-to-Bonnie-Parker.html#c74410 urn:md5:a71a1981c126285d5d9b468f853930f4 Tue, 24 Mar 2015 10:54:27 +0100 scott parker <p>I LIVE IN MOMROE , LOUISIANA .

What is it? Dig a hole and stack them in it, like WWII ? Or dig a wide grave and re-inter them side by side? Will they have individual markers or will they have one marker with all their names/dates/etc? I wouldn't like to hear they were stacked or not individually named at the grave site. Then there's the question of how they can move remains without them falling apart. Are the diggers going to respectfully re-place them in a new container or just shovel the decomposed remains into a heavy equipment shovel/bucket to be dumped in the new hole in the ground? The process should be described, care should be taken and not just let corporate shovels dig and dump without proper regard.</p> Thousands of Bodies Could Be Exhumed from Guildford, England, Graveyard - Doreen http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2015/03/Thousands-of-Bodies-Could-Be-Exhumed-from-Guildford-England-Graveyard.html#c74367 urn:md5:c430637be6ccdefb3a0fc4f430454e90 Sat, 21 Mar 2015 11:24:53 +0100 Doreen <p>If the church regards our loves ones bodies as monetary value for their gain - they will lose their congregation - so sell the church instead and leave our loved ones alone to rest in peace - if they relate to the bible at all.

This is not the first time. Having traversed through that Royal town on several occasions, it's so sad and heart-wrenching to hear of this horrific decision.</p> Thousands of Bodies Could Be Exhumed from Guildford, England, Graveyard - Elizabeth http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2015/03/Thousands-of-Bodies-Could-Be-Exhumed-from-Guildford-England-Graveyard.html#c74342 urn:md5:596b03782d363153ed848216636dd34c Fri, 20 Mar 2015 15:23:49 +0100 Elizabeth <p>What does rest in peace mean to this church. I am an American and if for some reason a cemetery has to be sold the bodies are re-entered into a different cemetery with respect. I have a lot of family and ancestors in Englad and Wales. If this is allowed this time then where will the next place be? My parents are gone too and I go there to pay my respect and love to them because their grave is the only place I can go to do that since their souls are in Heaven. We paid dearly for the funeral costs, the plot, the headstones. We paid for the eternal spot with perpetual care which is forever. When the church sold that plot to a family then they don't own it anymore and should not have a right to do what they are doing. God Bless all of the families out there that have loved ones buried there. To the greedy one's "Karma' what goes around come's around. For the church and it's politices have a heart if you don't then shame on you.</p> Are You Related to Lizzie Borden? - Joseph H Thomas http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2011/07/Are-You-Related-to-Lizzie-Borden.html#c74340 urn:md5:cb54ad7a27ec88caf891d15634a86e4d Fri, 20 Mar 2015 14:52:55 +0100 Joseph H Thomas <p>I am a 7th Cousin 2 times removed of Lizzie Borden.

Never to be disturbed. Their families certainly paid to and did so in that belief. I absolutely disagree with this practice and to put all these remains in a mass grave also disgusts me, they didn't die in a disaster that made them unknown people they lived their lives and died no doubt in the belief that their final resting place was just that FINAL and PERMANENT. Find somewhere else to build surely it would be a lot less expensive to do so, if the removal and replacement was to be done properly and respectfully. This practice need's to be stopped, respect for the dearly departed and a conscience is something that is increasingly lacking in this day and age. Do we all have to be cremated and put in a jar to stop this happening to us. I know how much it means to me to be able to visit my parents grave and other generations of my family knowing they are there and not there with hundreds or thousands of others. They paid for this right and that is the least they deserve, leave them the hell alone. If this is done I hope they come back to HAUNT those responsible. (Remember Poltergeist).<br /> The people in Guildford Surrey need to stand up and make them take notice this is totally unacceptable most likely it is these people's family member's that have been buried there SPEAK FOR THEM that no longer have a voice. I to write from far away being born in New Zealand but this sort of thing is happening all over the world, there is always somewhere else to build greed and laziness because you would have to travel a little bit further to a Community Centre or to park your car. We all need to speak up for them and STOP this practice that is the least we can do.</p> Are You Related to Bonnie Parker? - bb http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2012/10/Are-You-Related-to-Bonnie-Parker.html#c74325 urn:md5:0d5368b7584a604bbe6258715990dad2 Fri, 20 Mar 2015 08:32:53 +0100 bb <p>Your all just confused none of you really are</p> Thousands of Bodies Could Be Exhumed from Guildford, England, Graveyard - F Warner http://genealogyblog.geneanet.org/index.php/post/2015/03/Thousands-of-Bodies-Could-Be-Exhumed-from-Guildford-England-Graveyard.html#c74322 urn:md5:12aef0f73651d160a441e4acbccaa427 Fri, 20 Mar 2015 08:17:35 +0100 F Warner <p>I write from far away, but If you want to get rid of Historical places, its surely a good start to do this with St Johns Grave yard in Guildford Surrey in the South East of England. It has still “retained” much of its historical charm, with its cobbled high street shows many buildings which are hundreds of years old. The medieval castle was used by the King of England in the 1400s and because of this Guildford is the only royal town in Surrey. With the last burial at the church thought to have taken place in the 1870s, it must have some historical value. If it was for the building of a hospital it would be worth considering, but a community centre, and yet another car park, do us all a favour and do remember of what value history.</p>
