@noelle to be curious was Anthony your grandmother's family or your grandfather's?
I've done some genealogy work and been surprised how patriarchal the whole system is especially considering it is supposed to be based on "genetics" which would give equal weight to both the mother and father's genes.
@ted Arlene was my grandfather's sister. And yeah, it's odd how little is recorded about the women in historical documents.
@noelle in doing the research, it is hard to find maiden names. An exciting event when you get one!
