52 Ancestors #30 – Colourful – 4 Generations of Colourful Weddings

Color or Colour? Well, being an Aussie, I say Colour! Sometimes prompts jumps out and I know who I’m going to write about, other times, I sit and ponder for a while, sometimes days, then the thoughts start accumulating in my head and before I know it, I just have to sit at the computer and start punching them out.

And this newsletter will have me ahead for the 52 Ancestor challenge. Continue reading

52 Ancestors #29 – Music – Margaret Williams

Margaret Cripps nee Williams

Music…this weeks prompt has me thinking (with a hint from a friend) about all the music played at church…weddings…funerals…and Sunday service hymns.
