England 1066

You can read up on the Bayeux Tapestry before watching the video. I think it's an amazing piece of history that changed the lives of everyone, including our ancestors. And the stitchery is pretty amazing as well!

What do you think?

So, I have added more birthdays. I am putting the Framptons in, and it is getting bigger. I wonder if I should have kept the Whites and the Framptons separate? On the one hand, you can see all of their birthdays for each month. On the other hand, you can't tell which are Framptons and which are Whites. They are all grandparents. It probably only matters to Damon, who is only tied to the Whites and not the Framptons. What to do, what to do.

What is a glerkd and how did it come to be?

A glerkd is a George-Lorrie-Emily-Roger-Karen-David! It came into existence through the genius of Lorrie. It was a secret family code for recognition in an emergency. A stranger who couldn't name the code word was out of luck because the next step was to turn and run. It was also the signature on correspondence such as Christmas newsletters. It has now become another alley of information for our beloved ancestors of the Frampton-White lines. If you remember a GLERKD moment, please share!
