I'm sitting here at the computer trying to put my finishing touches on my post for the next Carnival of Genealogy AND warming up my scanner for the next Scanfest session (3 - 6 PM today, Pacific Daylight Time), when in comes an e-mail:
My grandmother passed away last December and yesterday we were going through the house and found a bible belonging to Ann (Wilson) Westaby with hand written family names and dates. The Bible was printed in 1852 and the last date of information she put in was 1878. I found you by searching Thomas Westaby on google which led me to rootsweb. Didn't know if you would be interested in seeing photos or (a) scanned copy of the handwriting.
Ann was hubby's 3rd-great-grandmother, and with her husband, they were the immigrant ancestors for this family line to the United States from England in 1850. Can you hear me screaming for joy? ;-)
