    Last night, as I was trying to get away from my 87 year old mother-in-law, to go out to eat, she showed me a picture. It was a picture of her great-grandparents, with their 11 grown children.

    I turned the picture over, and it said Russell was their last name. I said it out loud, as my daughters boyfriends first name is Russell. As I was drifting off to sleep, it came to me, Charles Taze Russell. I remember she referred to them as a proper English family. And they had some money.

    Ring any bells? I will ask her more later. My mother-in-law, has a long story about EVERYTHING!!

    You may or may not be related to Russell. Geneology is fascinating.

    I say - endure the torture (grin) - ask your m-i-l about what she knows - and for Petes sake - write it down!

    I wish I had been more attentive to listening to the older ones that were related to me... of course... sometimes they get their facts mixed up - as well as their dates, but it makes it easier to filter through later - if you have a starting point.

    My great grandmother was a Russell. Maybe you're related to me? LOL
