Study Reveals Genetic Path of Modern Britons

"In A.D. 410, Roman authority in Britain collapsed and Romano-British society disappeared from history under the invading tides of Angles and Saxons from northern Europe. Historians have been debating ever since whether the Romano-British were wiped out or survived by adopting their conquerors’ language and culture."

Family History Month


October is Family History Month in the United States. It's worthwhile your doing a little Internet research to discover the many websites offering suggestions for activities that you and your family can be involved in to celebrate this important event. For example, when I did a Google search for "Family History Month" I received a staggering 205,000,000 results.

The common theme for many of the most popular family history and genealogy websites, is to use the month to encourage our children and grandchildren to get involved in investigating their roots. The reward is that, in addition to improving their knowledge of their ancestors, they will improve their research skills and broaden their general knowledge relating to history and geography.

I have provided the following links to help get you started:
