I forgot to felt write today, thanks in part to having had a migraine for 48 hours, until sometime this morning. But I got sucked in to a genealogy project. Having borrowed my father-in-law’s fancy account with all its international access to all kinds of documents, I was able to uncover this pretty cool document. Thanks, to whomever scanned it and uploaded it to the internet. My ancestor was a Scottish Merchant Marine, certified, until he earned enough to buy a farm in Wisconsin, where he had quite a few children, including the amazingly named William Wallace Ferrier.
