My head is full of the surnames of my Old German Baptist Brethren extended family. As I documented an obituary… I saw that a family member married Michael Kingery. “I know that name” was my immediate reaction. It required several hours of searching and documenting until I reached the immigrant ancestor. Note that I have a really far–reaching relationship to Michael: “husband of 3rd great-grandniece of wife of 3rd cousin 3x removed.” ~~ This interesting fact: “Kingery” was originally Gingrich. Yes, I have a “really far–reaching relationship” to Newton “Newt” Leroy Gingrich (former House Speaker). ~~ Bright idea: Prepare a blog message with a list of “famous” people I’m related to (some “good” and some “bad”).
