Andrew Jackson Kerr & Esther Alice Carroll

(click to enlarge)

Recently I was contacted (through this blog!) by a Kerr descendant I've never met. We're enjoying a lively exchange of photos and information, and I look forward to sharing some here.

My "new" cousin emailed me a digital scan of a photocopied page from the Kerr family Bible. I'd never seen the Bible; in fact, I'd never even heard about it. He'd had it in his care for quite some time, but eventually passed it on to someone else, keeping only a photocopy of the page listing births in the family.

I was pleased to add a few dates to my Family Tree Maker database, and to find confirmation of many more that I already had.
