Swipe 👉🏼 to see the other photos. “What do you do at work?” I transcribe old records, burials mainly and I often come across a gem of an entry like this. Jarrow Cemetery - April 2nd 1891 Olive Elizabeth Campbell age 1 was buried. She was the Daughter of Leslie .. occupation - Circus Performer. Address - Caledonian Road. 
A few months prior there was another interesting entry. 12th January 1891 Alice Jane Martin age 2 was buried. She is the Daughter of George Alfred. Occupation - travelling showman. Address - pit heap. 
It got me thinking about the circus that came to Jarrow and I spent some time at the Library searching old newspaper archives. 
Circus Day in Jarrow, the talk of every town! At Red House Farm Field, Cemetery bank Jarrow .. and what’s the saying “the show must go on” Friday 24 January 1908 as reported in the Jarrow Express the lion tamer was mauled. The lioness fastening her teeth around his left arm....

@dfwwineguy and I did a little antique shopping this weekend to get out of the house and still avoid the heat. 
I have been seeing so many cute decorating ideas with vintage maps and postcards so I spent a good deal of time flipping through boxes @montgomerystreetantiquemall and scored some great finds.  This postcard was in the Ohio(where I am from) and the writer was from TX (where I live now) and believe it or not the writer has my maiden name.  I sent my dad pictures and he said that there were two brothers that immigrated in the 20's from England.  One settled in Ohio and the other moved to Texas.  This could actually be a long lost family member. 🤯

Trying to figure out how I can be so busy but at the same time manage to watch an entire season of @outlander_starz in one week? 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 .
.
Watching Outlander has made me realize how fascinating Scottish history and culture is. Today I did some digging on @familysearch and discovered I have a lot of Scottish ancestors! In fact, my 12th Great-Grandpa is Jamie Fraser’s 3rd Great-Grandpa.😎 (It’s safe to say I’m obsessed.🤷🏻‍♀️)

In doing family research my dad found that his grandfather (and original JGM), William Johnson Gordon Moore, was buried at Floral Park Cemetery in Indianapolis. WJGM, my great-grandfather, was born into slavery in Tennessee in 1852 (he was literally 12 years a slave) and eventually made his way north to Indiana. For an unknown period of time his grave was unmarked and my dad was able to track down the records and location to install a marker. The reason for having two last names, Gordon and Moore, is that at some point he was SOLD.
#Slavery wasn't that long ago.

I'm trying to create a map of my novel's world based as much as possible on the real world of #turn-of-the-century #Terrebonne Parish in #Louisiana. ⠀
⠀
This email I sent to @dukelibraries highlights the challenges I've faced:⠀
⠀
I'm writing a historical novel based on my ancestors and believe the "Directory of the Parish of Terrebonne, 1897" would help. You have one of only two copies available to the public. Could you scan and send a few relevant pages to me? ⠀
⠀
I'm trying to locate the property Edmond Jules LeBlanc, who went by Jules and was married to Alfrida Marcelline Fanguy. I've seen Alfrida spelled a ton of different ways, including "Elphrida." They lived in Terrebonne Parish--I believe along Bayou Little (or Petit) Caillou near the community of Chauvin, though I'm not sure when the area became known as Chauvin. As a landmark, the Chauvin Brothers general store opened in the area in 1875.⠀
⠀
It's also possible the family lived along Bayou Terrebonne near Montegut, known as Le Terrebonne at some point.⠀
⠀
I've also seen the settlements up and down this bayou referred to as Little (or Petit) Caillou. Plus, I've seen the Chauvin and Montegut areas referred to as Lower Terrebonne.⠀
⠀
Plus, I'm aiming to understand the distance of the LeBlanc home to their community hubs, such as the church, school, general store and post office, so any addresses or maps of these landmarks would also be appreciated. Many thanks!⠀
⠀
***⠀
⠀
Instagram friends: If you can help me pin down this information--it doesn't have to come from this directory, which is one of many sources I've tried--I want to hear from you! Help! ⠀
⠀
But it's not all frustration on my end. There's definitely a thrill-of-the-hunt component to tracking down this info!⠀
⠀
Btw, while this 1915 map pictured doesn't have the details I need, it does list my great-great grandfather Felix Guidry as a 7th Ward Police Juror (basically: an elected councilman) in the bottom lefthand corner!⠀
⠀

Sometimes these family tree genealogy paintings can get complicated. We can always work out creative ways to honor those who went before us, providing beauty from brokenness and preserving a family legacy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A detached cottage for €14k anywhere in Ireland is nothing to be sniffed at. Pop it in beautiful Kerry and add electricity and a private well to the mix along with 0.75 of an acre of land and I think we have ourselves a little bit of a gem! As always, a link to the full original listing is up in the bio. #kerry #cokerry #ireland_gram #irelandinspires #irishlandscape #irelandaily #ireland #thisisireland #ireland_gram #visitireland #irishcottage #expat #irishproperty #geneology #irishrealty #irishrealestate #cheapirishhouses #under100k #cottage #cottagelife #irishcentral #irishamerican #retiretoireland

After having babies, my hobbies changed and evolved a bit. One new hobby that has matched up well with my new lifestyle and schedule has been Family History. Learning about the women who have paved the way for me and my family has been a source of strength as I have navigated through young motherhood. 
When it came time to naming the dresses, I wanted to find a way to pay tribute to my ancestors. The name for the Almere Dress came from part of my great, great grandmothers’ names: Algie Jennie Walker and Elsie Merrilla Cook. These two women had different strengths, challenges, and choices in life. However, I am connected to them both and have been able to learn from the unique lives they lived. They are gone but not forgotten. Like them, I hope to live a life that my children and children’s children can be proud of. 
Do you know much about your ancestors? We would love to hear about them in the comments below! (Side note: “Al” is used as a suffix which means “pertaining to” and “mere” means “mother” in French. These dresses pertain to you amazing mothers out there. ❤️)
