Vita Brevis - Where does the time go?

I feel I've been  neglecting this blog recently but that doesn't mean I've stopped blogging. You can also find me on the New England Historic Genealogical Society's blog Vita Brevis. Today I wrote about My little slice of Irish ancestry which detailed the one and only Irish ancestor I've been able to find.

William Jack, born about 1745 possibly in Belfast, died after 1810 in Venango Township, Butler County, Pennsylvania. His life and travels followed a typical Scotch-Irish migration path.

I've also written about a possible mystery ancestor in Who was Magaretha Schmitt? Her cross-stitch sampler has been handed down in my family to me. But we have no idea who she is!
