Interestingly, most of the castles in the uk were built by Robert after the invasion. wow totally small world... so I can call you sis now then??????? LOL xoxo

lol it would, although I guess I'm on the other side as was his half brother so cousin removed :)

Oddly, those who are related to William are supposed to be able to trace their line back to Charlemagne and Jesus Christ, Even Robert the Bruce due to the kings of Europe all inter marrying people of wealth or power through the ages. There are a number of websites on the topic which I thought was quite interesting. Not to mention you would also be related to King Clovis of France whose grandfather was supposed to be a sea monster lol

When mum traced our tree back, we were quite lucky as our line have (until me) being well off and powerful, so because they were noblemen etc. you have a record of the marriages and deaths. If you were poor most records stop before the 1700's especially in places like Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

Since mum died I have meant to carry it on tracing other sides of the family I just don't have the willpower to trawl through all that paperwork lol but i should as it's a gift to others.

Still one thing is for sure, you and I might be related to kings of Europe and even Jesus but it does show if you go back far enough, we are all related to each other... crazy small world :)

I'm related to Jesus????

might give walking on water a go tomorrow :yes:

seriously though that is really interesting..its hard to do our tree due to the fact that some of the family (s) dont know who their legitimate father was ..I caused a big stir digging through the family history,and found many many skeletons in the family closet that wanted to stay locked in there, but me being me said , BullS**t, this is history. :histerics:
Yep and now various people in that crowd wont and dont talk to me anymore :thinking2: :yes: but thats a whooooole other story , which I started to put in book form , must get back to that one day. :thinking2:

You only bow to Buddah if you are buddist, which is a choice - you bow to nobility cause you don't have that choice..... :roflmao: :histerics:

*bows to princess*

Better listen to Princess now... remember back in those days if the royals didn't like you, thought you had done something or simply felt like it, they chopped off your head... bowing just makes it easier for her to do the chop.... :histerics: Maybe that is where the saying ... Pull your head in.... comes from :lol: :roflmao:

:histerics: :histerics: :histerics: love this bowing but it :stink: :stink: :stink:
a old friend of the family once said to me "never bow to no bastard as we are
all equal to each other regardless of title how rich or poor or the colour of ya
skin nor your religious beliefs !! but respect and being courteous to others will
go a long way to making new friends"
but any way back to the subject at hand i see a new sign has gone up at
Fremantle Cemetery near the Crematorium building entrance that cameras
and taking photos are not allowed without written consent of the
WA Cemetery Board !! that's a bit harsh as i wanted to take a few photos
of the oldest section of the cemetery as some plots date back to the early
1800s !! basically when Fremantle was being established !!

When did that sign go up James?!!!!!!!!!!
I hope I still have my photos somewhere that I took there a couple years back, will have to dig through things and look for them. I got photos of some of the old plots but not a lot of close up ones, just lots of area shots.
That sucks big time! :furious:

Wonder if this has anything to do with it...

I can't find anything on the site or in the brochure that says you can't take photos unless I missed it. If photos are not allowed, it should be stated in the information..

i don't know when the sign went up forgot too ask my friend today who works at Freo Cemetery but he said the sign has a fault on it as it's supposed to say no photos to be taken within the Crematorium or other buildings !! as my friend said it's due to security upgrades being enforced by the Cemetery Board !!
must have had a few vandal's come through or some morbid people with a
thing for dead people !! I'll find out more when i see him next !!
