    My effort for this week.

    I enjoyed doing this one but had to stop myself from turning it into a full scale research project!!

      Oh no Caroline, I love these type of statistics, I am desperately trying to talk myself out of doing the same exercise with my family.

      However whilst reading your blog and the mistranscription of Clara, I had a lightbulb moment for a subject for my own contribution for 'namesake.' I had been writing a pretty dry account of family naming patterns, so with your help I am now reenergised in writing about another ancestor completely. Thank you Caroline. Will add a link when it is written.

          For namesake I wrote about my 3xGreatGrandmother William Mary Randolph nee Wilson and how she got her name. I hope it will be of interest to someone out there.

                Thank you Amy, as you have said there are keyrings aplenty with your name now. It is funny how names go in cycles.
