I'd like to invite you to become a member of one of my more popular AoM groups. It's called "Family Man", and it's devoted to the betterment of families. It's for men striving to be better husbands, fathers and sons. Check it out here!
Andrew, what a great book, "A Distant Mirror" is. I thought the same thing, man the research that went into that book. She has several other history books that are quiet wonderful as well.
Thanks for sharing,
Hey Andrew, you actually do look a little like some of my dad's side but I don't see any connection on your geneaology site. My dad was named John ('Jack') Ramage Barbour (1921), his dad was George Herbert Barbour (1883) and, finally, George's dad was James Martin Barbour (1844).
