A challenge for the weekend: update

15 May

I made a start last night on adding 3x and 4x great grandparents to my family tree. I’ve only added four individuals so far, but three of those were direct ancestors, so it is off to a good start.

I started with my WALDER ancestors from Bolney, Sussex because I knew they would be quite easy to trace. I hadn’t realised quite how easy!

The 1881 census entry for Bee Houses, Bolney, Sussex was a genealogists dream come true. On census night there were four generations of the family in the house. Talk about making life easy for me!

In complete contrast I can’t find any of my WALDERs in the 1871 census, so that is one I need to make a note of and come back to later when I have more time.
