T. Moule #Surrey#London 1837c.1855
steel plate Coloured 200 by 260mm (7.75 by 10.25 inches). Good condition
An #attractive#map of Surrey surrounded by vignette views including #Dulwich College and #Richmond Bridge. Thomas Moule (1784-1851), like many other map-makers and map-sellers before him, was a man of many talents. As an author his output included books and papers on #topography , #history , #genealogy , #heraldry and #architecture . His county maps show elements of all his studies and interests. Maps by Moule are some of the best known English county maps. Issued from 1830 onwards the maps combine a clear #cartographic style with immense detail - vignette #views , #scenes and #portraits relating to the county are often included on the map, frequently set within gothic architectural or #floral surround into which armorial devices and so on are worked. As editions of the maps continued to be published, first in "The English Counties Delineated" and later in "Barclay's English Dictionary", the development of the network or railways throughout England could be observed. le comes. Frequently entitled "the last series of decorative county maps", Moule's maps are good, informative maps, as popular now as they were in the early years of Queen Victoria's reign. Slight split repaired along old folds. [ref: 42266 ] £160
Говоря о Романовых, нельзя не сказать о родителях первого царя рода Романовых - Михаила Федоровича.
Патриарх Филарет (в миру Фёдор Никитич Романов).
Родился примерно в 1553 году в Москве.
Отец Фёдора - Никита Романович Захарьин-Юрьев, мать Ксения Шестова.
У Фёдора было 12 сестер и братьев:
🔺Анна - супруга князя Ивана Фёдоровича Троекурова;
🔺Евфимия - супруга князя Ивана Васильевича Сицкого;
🔺Марфа - супруга князя Бориса Камбулатовича Черкасского;
🔺Ульяна (умерла в младенчестве);
🔺Ирина - супруга Ивана Ивановича Годунова;
🔺Анастасия - супруга князя Бориса Михайловича Лыкова-Оболенского;
В ранние годы Фёдор Романов не помышлял о монашестве и духовной стезе. Боярин c 1586 года, один из первых щёголей в Москве, сын влиятельного Никиты Захарьина-Юрьева, племянник царицы Анастасии, первой жены Ивана IV Грозного, он считался возможным соперником Бориса Годунова в борьбе за власть после смерти Фёдора Иоанновича (сына Ивана IV Грозного) в 1598 году.
Вместе с другими Романовыми, подвергшимися опале при Борисе Годунове, который рассматривал их как своих соперников в притязаниях на московский престол, в 1600 году был сослан.
В этот же год Фёдор принял монашество под именем Филарет.
Был церковным и политическим деятелем Смутного времени и последующей эпохи.
С 1619 по 1633 годы - Патриарх Московский и всея Руси.
Фёдор был первым из рода Романовых, носивший именно эту фамилию.
Умер Филарет 1 октября 1633 года в Москве.

My Husband T152799. This is a new Admixture (Ethnicity Calculator) on Gedmatch! 😀👍🌳EUROGENES EUTEST V2 K15. It has Irish as his 3rd highest ethnicity which really has me wondering now! Cannot wait to see his Ancestry DNA results to confirm Irish %! His 1st cousin doesn't have the same grandma as he does and Jared's grandma is full Welsh! His 1st cousin shows no Irish here at all! So Welsh shows up as Irish which makes sense because when you trace a Welsh King's line back it goes to Ireland then the Middle East before that. Very interesting! #gedmatch#dnatesting#europeans#irish#genealogy#ancestrydna
Tonight, Matt Thorenz, adult services librarian, and I gave a local history and genealogy discussion at the newly re-opened @moffatlibrary ! Glad to see a familiar face and some new ones joined in. Looking forward to the genealogy club kick off on October 5th! #genealogy#moffatlibrary#washingtonville#localhistory
This is my husband Jared's DNA test on My Heritage! Was free to transfer there from Family Tree DNA! After comparing him to the Irish people that took their DNA test, it is actually starting to look like he is very Irish afterall! But his paternal grandma was full Welsh too! Hoping his paternal line Gary is actually Irish, not the English Gary's in Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, England! His ydna though goes back to Bosnia, not very helpful. Haplogroup I-M438. Awaiting Ancestry DNA's opinion! The Finland is for sure his mom's side since his MTDNA Haplogroup is U5a1a on 23andme. #ancestrydna#myheritage#dnatest#genealogy#irish#welsh#scottish#iberian#english#finnish#u5a1a1#I -M438 #mtdna#ydna#haplogroup#23andme
Very interesting! Irish people that took a DNA test on My Heritage! Hate how they mix the British and Irish, that is why I ordered Jared an Ancestry DNA test, they separate them. Awaiting results! #irish#dnatest#genealogy#ancestrydna#myheritage
Here lies Teunis Garret Bergen, whose list of accomplishments includes numerous contributions to genealogy. Born in the town of New Utrecht, his first profession was in the art of surveying, which gave him access to and knowledge of original Dutch records. That in turn perhaps inspired him to write books pertaining to the Bergen, Van Brunt and Lefferts families. One of the best general genealogy publications was published by Teunis in the last year of his life, and was titled "Register, in Alphabetical Order, of the Early Settlers of Kings County, Long Island, NY, from its First Settlement by Europeans to 1700: with Contributions to their Biographies and Genealogies, compiled from various sources." 📖
All right, finally back for a day of #genealogyphotoaday . Today's theme is book, so I pulled out a photo of what is technically a photo album. I hope that counts! It certainly looks like a book and I think it feels a lot like a book when you are flipping through and going through all of the stories that go with the pictures.
Sometimes doing genealogy can be very rewarding, other times it can be straight up frustrating. How do you stay motivated and optimistic when you are stuck? One thing I do is try to remember the way busting through brick walls feels and I try to keep that feeling in mind as I struggle through the hard times.
Kids are fantastic indexers! At the FamilyRootsExpo down in St. George we invited the youth to transcribe hunting and fishing records from the Kroff Family Archive on Kindex (kroff.kindex.org). While some of the handwriting was a little tricky, they loved reading about Verl Kroff's records of his travels throughout Utah and Idaho as he searched for the best places to fish and how to catch them.
