Happy 2015, everyone! Hope you are well. I haven't posted in awhile because I've pretty much learned all I can learn--or at least have found everything to be found online. I now help others find their heritage, as well as work with my Aunt on my Dad's side with new discoveries...and they have been amazing. I thought I would have a Mayflower connection through the Mann side, but it turns out we are Mayflower descendants through my Dad's side. We are also 5th cousins to Abraham Lincoln. Cool beans!
On a funny note, the other day I saw this clip on a British sketch comedy show. SO funny! This is dedicated to all of my newfound cousins! Cheers!

This Christmas, Dec 25, 2014 marks the 100th birthday of Vera Mann--the anchor of this blog. I nearly forgot. In all of my research related to the Mann family of Massachusetts, I thought for sure I'd find a Mayflower connection, but recently discovered the connection comes through my father's side. HA Either branch puts us in Plymouth Colony. :-)
Born in Athol, MA, Vera died 13 May 1999 in Gresham, Oregon.
Vera's Lineage: Richard Man, Thomas Man, Ensign Mann, Ensign II, Ensign III, William, Horace, James
