    Week 23 (June 7-13): Bridge

    The theme this week is "Bridge." A bridge connects two things that are separated, whether it's land or people (maybe even time?). You could take the theme literally and write about an ancestor who worked on bridges or had to cross them regularly. How about someone who worked or lived on a river? What about someone who played bridge (the card game). You could take a more figurative take on and think about who has been a bridge in your genealogy -- who has connected you to the past? Lots of possibilities this week!

    Thank you, Raymond Schneider, for suggesting this theme!

    It took me a while to work out a link to any kind of Bridge. Good old 3xGreat Grandfather, John Randolph (surgeon) whose business was being conducted from no.2 Bridge Street, Westminster at the time of his bankruptcy.
