This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Washington. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Washington. If you don’t have any connections to Washington, find a Washington resource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 10/20/2013 – 10/26/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.
My connection to the state of Washington is rather remote. Anna Louise Hayward was born in Spokane, Washington on July 17, 1881. She married my second cousin twice removed, Ralph Barnard Trousdale. His parents were James Barnard Trousdale and Mary Barbara Valdivia. Mary’s parents were Rafael Joseph Valdivia and Frances Augusta Sanders. Frances parents were Henry Lewer Sanders and Barbara Anne Warwick, out common ancestor.
