The goal of this project is to ... Tell the story of Jemima Saunders-Greer her life, loves, children, and being a Widow and remarrying. And find as many SOURCES and adding that data.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Carole Taylor.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

Will you join me? Please post a comment here on this page, in G2G using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks!
