As a distraction from thoughts of the death of my young cat the night before, I did a Google search of some surnames and areas.  I found a partial family tree of someone who had a distant relative included.  From that tree I was able to fill in more descendants from a branch of Kercher.  It’s rather like filling in pieces of the puzzle and is very satisfying.  I also downloaded some old photos of the ancestral village.

I must back up the information gathered so far on the computer.
