ARCHIVED: Genealogy Game Night - 9 July 2016

Cousin Russ sure did stump the hangout panel with "Why did I choose to share him tonight?" We managed to figure out Benjamin Chew was a Quaker, freed his slaves, was a judge, and lived in the 1700s. We did not realize how open-minded this 5th generation Quaker was in "swearing an oath" as Chief Judge in Pennsylvania, and helped found another church.

Looking at the political and racial strife currently rocking the US, Cousin Russ shared his ancestor as an example to us all that we must be open minded even now, in this day and age.

Find out what Melissa Barker's ancestral father and two sons did on the same day.

Find out what unusual occupation Ol' Myrt's ancestor had in the 1900s.
