TBT–Great grandparents


These are Maytag Man’s great grandparents on his dad’s side, Frank and Ella Hullinger. 

I have been climbing the ancestor tree again, finding some interesting facts that are hopefully accurate.  Also finding several obvious errors.  Seems as if this line actually came from Switzerland (no wonder we love that country!), but the name was HOllinger there; apparently changed to the current spelling when they entered Germany.  This certainly creates more challenges.

Interesting stuff, and I will keep researching to see what else I can uncover. 

Meanwhile, back in Mayberry, this is a photo of our cove from yesterday (thanks, Amy):


Brrr…makes me appreciate our balmy 48 here in W Palm Beach even more!

Stay safe and warm, peaches!

That is very interesting! Thanks for all the research you're doing on both sides of the family tree! We will have to go visit our Irish and Swiss roots sometime.

Neat picture! I bet that cove is whiter today! And colder...

What a lot of work you do tracking your heritage. Way cool though.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to those two precious babies. ♥♥♥

So awesome that you get to find out things about your ancestors! So your ancestors came from somewhere close to me - I like that :)
Enjoy Palm Beach! I want some warmer weather, too, please :)
Big hug to you!
