The Ancestral Places Geneameme

A fun Geneameme has been suggested by fellow geneablogger, Alona from Lonestester HQ

As family historians we come across all sorts of interesting people and places during our research. In this geneameme I wanted to focus on the places. The countries, the states, the counties or provinces, as well as the parishes, the towns and villages. Our ancestors have a connection to these places. photo and description from
