"Ancestral Chains, Fortune Bloodline: Dna Part 5 of 8" By Mark D Bishop
eBook (PDF): $7.79
Unbeknown to me, over the years that my father had been researching our ancestry, my mother had been doing the same, only in her own artistic way. Her ‘Scrapbooks’, or 'pictorial diaries'... More > contained, in their captivating pages, late-19th & early-20th century photos, newspaper cuttings, postcards and cardboard curiosities, among other memorabilia; all presented in her distinctive, scattily artistic fashion. The contents of these scrapbooks had been pasted together in the manner of how my mother uniquely saw life and ancestry. They reveal a haphazard approach, entirely different from the customary approach of orderly presentation. But in this is their incalculable value, because they reflect my mother’s realities, with the first scrapbook being aptly labelled, ‘Higgley-de-Piggley Book!!’ Bearing this important resource in mind, it is time to introduce my great-grandfather on my mother’s father’s side of my ancestral spectrum; my great-grandfather; he being Part V of my DNA, John Alfred Fortune (1872-1929).< Less
