I received a pass to IAJGS 2020. Woot! The first film Children of the Inquisition is a great documentary about Sephardic Jewish history and their descendants in the diaspora.

Thanks, my friend, though my 100+ looks a bit paltry compared to your 100x10+. I hope you and yours are well; I and mine are.

Bob. thank you for letting me know. I'd welcome your help! The first thing I've gotta' know is what I"ll have to do to update Sallie Millard's page. She had 14 sons and daughters! So what do I have to do?

Best, Jim

See my last post. Guess that why I have 12% Scandinavian DNA. I have your connection too, but would not be part of my 'Y' DNA, since its through mother.

Hey cousin

I just saw some research done on my Scots/Flemish ancestors. Seems that that line of Counts of Alost and Ghent in Flanders , were Counts of Holland before that, as their female line from Flanders married into and then carried the Countcy of Holland into Flanders. In fact they used the tittle in Flanders along with their local Alost and Ghent. Gilber de Ghent was a third son of the line. Companion to William of Normandy who had married his 1st cos. Was awarded 172 Manors for his service. His third son Walter de Lindisia on the Council of David I move to Scotland 1104. Founder of the Clan Lindsay. Walter took that name from the holding where he was living in Lincolnshire in his fathers holdings. In ancient times the 'Kingdom of Lindisia'. Now called LindsEy. Best Joseph
