Title: Genealogy Fit for a King
Snippet: Royal watching has never been a pass time of mine. However I understand and respect the loyalty people have with the royal family. Many of my ancestors at one time or another lived under the rule of a king or a queen. My mother’s family in Newfoundland was governed by the monarch until 1949 when the province joined confederation, so there’s no surprise Mom respects Queen Elizabeth and her father, King George VI.
Despite the fact that my attention isn’t focussed on her majesty and her royal off spring, I still know a great deal about her family because of my upbringing and the dedicated royal followers in Atlantic Canada. So when a baby is born, you can bet I can’t help but know about it.
