April update

I have several new 17th century marriage strays this month (BREEDON, KEENE, MORTIMER, ROBINSON, STRUPOR, WIGG). Whenever I learn about a new genealogical website or database I tend to use Wing Bucks/Buckinghamshire as my test search string to see what pops up, and I found these entries within books at Internet Archive using the Mocavo genealogical search engine. I won't comment further on Mocavo as it's brand new.

By the same method I came across a will of a Benjamin FEN senior from Milford Connecticut. He had inherited land in Wing from Agnes SEARE, and in turn passed this land on to one of his sons when he died. I must locate Agnes' will and find out what the connection was between the two.

Behind the scenes I'm trying to get my pages on the farms of Wing ready. This is a big big job!
