Alona Tester gave us The Ancestral Places Geneameme challenge for this years Family History Month so I thought I should squeeze into my busy life having a go at this.
The bulk of my ancestors and relatives come from the New Zealand and the United Kingdom. I could not find a few places for some letters. So I took the liberty to use a few places with the letter in the place name or even a few streets.
