Part 964 - Always Said That Something May Change

01 October 2019

Good Day,

Yes, there is egg on my face.

And as I have said the details and my research of our family history and ancestry will be an always changing experience.

About 10 years ago I found, what I thought, some information regarding my 4-times Great-Grandparents George and Isabel Kendal. Isabel Kendal would have be an ancestor in my mtDNA maternal line.

At the time, I recorded that GGGG-Grandmother Isabel's maiden name was Tasker. I also was able to recreate a well sourced ancestry following the Tasker family line in the Lancashire and Yorkshire areas of England.

Most recently, I have been comparing other information as presented on family trees in Ancestry. I noticed that in some cases some trees exhibited a George Kendal and his wife, Isabel Atkinson. The marriage, I found the Registration, is dated 13 December 1794 from Giggleswick, Yorkshire.

I cannot for the life of me understand why I included Isabel Tasker. I cannot find a registration for a Kendal Tasker marriage. I did find a 1777 baptism registration for one Isabel Tasker.

And just today I discovered a 1795 baptism registration for an Ann, daughter of George and Isabell Kendale, who was baptized at St. Mary's in Gisburn, Lancashire/Yorkshire. Their first 4 children were all baptized there. The next 3 children including my 3-times Great-Grandmother Elizabeth Kendal were baptized a short distance away at Downham, Lancashire.

Guess I will be correcting my "error". I'll keep my eyes open. I will not delete my Tasker research, but I will unlink the connection from my current family tree.

It is so, so critical to find and keep the critical and noteworthy documentation.

I have uploaded the correct information and deleted the incorrect to various online genealogy locations. On Ancestry the Family Tree file is called "Smith Robertson Family Tree Oct 1, 2019". If you would like an "invitee" to access the Tree please email me.

Your thoughts?

The search continues.  And I just keep on going.

Also, let me know if you would like an invitation to access to my Smith Robertson Family Tree on Ancestry. You can email me at
