An Ancestress – My Mum

I must confess that, in our politically correct world, I had never heard the term Ancestress used until Heather Rojo used it on Facebook recently.

Several regular dictionaries tell me that Ancestress is a female ancestor.

Auntie Facts

I finally met my online genimate, Tony Proctor, at Rootstech last week. Tony who has been a great supporter of the Geneadictionary has just sent through some further suggestions for the site. Here is one of them.

“Auntie facts” (like artifacts). This was actually a slip-of-the-tongue during a conversation but I like it so much that I want to use it to describe family rumours.
