Saturday Night/Sunday Morning Genealogy Fun – My genealogical three’s

I’ve been busy catching up on a few maintenance projects around the Ancestral Wales home, which was in desperate need of some painting projects to be done – hence the absence of posts. 

Thanks to a recent update for the computer that went rogue on me this week, I’ve also had to spend a lot of time restoring my computer, and on the phone with Microsoft (and my thanks to the techs who rescued my stuff and called me back three times to make sure everything was updating ok!!!)  Although I’m always backing up my system, it is never 100 percent up to date, and so I did lose some of my work.  A valuable lesson learned indeed.

In the absence of any genealogical tidbits to post this week, I decided to take up Genea-Musing’s Saturday night fun challenge. (yes, it is Sunday now …….)   “Tell us your three responses to the questions:”
