halloween-skeleton “If you cannot get rid of the family skeleton, you may as well make it dance.”

Have you found a skeleton in your family tree? Someone with a shady background, runaway, a train robber, convicted criminal even? How about sharing your skeleton with SCVGS? Planning a display for January.

X-out the names if you must but share the story of your find – how you found them, approximate dates of their life and. of course, the skeleton’s story.

Send your skeleton to my email , or put the info in my drawer in the cabinet by the door in the Genealogy Center. Would love to have a picture if you think it ‘s OK.

Please be sure to give me a way to contact you.

    Sue, I love this idea!! My Cornish grandma, whose last name was King always told us as kids that rather than being related to royalty, we were probably related to pirates who worked the Cornish coast. She never mentioned a name (darn it), but my great grandfather had two fishing boats and fished those waters for many years before coming to the US. Carole (Stoltz)

      Carole, Great! Sounds like something we can play around with.

      I take it you are home now? We’ll have to make plans for cleaning up research.
