You NEVER know what the day will bring in a detailed, or not so detailed, Genealogy Hunt. Just be prepared...

And I thought that this next document in my genealogy search of the Doherty Family was to be my last discovery. But no, you would not believe what I just found this morning... but I am not going to say that which I found until I see the possible documentation and recording in the Registers of Baptism of St. Peters. At first glance, it looks like it just might be correct. Stay-tuned...
