A genealogy update (with thank you) and some writing news.
I’ve finished, or at least got to a stage that I can share, a TABERNER update. There’s some additional information, a minor pruning on the Alternative line and a little extra linkage. Again, this is due to the Lancashire OPC [External Link] team and their project, so a big and well deserved “Thank you” goes to them. I have no idea what I would do without them!
The prize for most intriguing relationships goes to my great great great grandfather, William TABERNER, for marrying two Ann ROBYs. I’d always assumed the different ages given for census data were just lying to make herself feel better, but it turns out she’s two people! The first Ann became known as Alice and died in 1874. The second Ann had already been married to a RUTTER and married William in June 1874.
Next week, more CHARLESWORTH changes. Mike SPENCER and his postings on the DERBYS-Gen list have borne some more fruit. Along with some marriage look-ups by Sue BROWN (on the same list). Updates and proper thanks to the heroes in question next week, I promise.
And on to writing.
The Drollerie Press [External Link] Little Red Riding Hood anthology, Straying From The Path is well and truly out. You can find out more about it here: [External Link]. And just so you remember what to look for, my story is The Big, Bad Wolf and I’m Jo Thomas. Just making sure…
I’ve had another short accepted for an anthology. Broken Bear, my attempt at capturing a bit of Celtic and a bit of Viking mythologies, has been accepted for Ricasso Press’ [External Link] Through Blood and Iron Anthology. Oh, and if you care to know, a ricasso is “The unsharpened section of the blade near the hilt and usually within the guards in front of the quillions.” Says so right here: [External Link].
