Email from Marsha Berry... August 18, 2009

"Hello Keith,

Eileen Sears sent me these 2 .pdf this morning you can put on your Bobbitt web site.  They are Eileen's July 2009 research log and a list of Suffolk County, England Parishes that have been searched.  There are only a couple of parishes left that have no Bobbitt names.

First pdf file

Second pdf file

Nanette Averett gave me her paper trail research log and will email me her .pdf research log soon.  I will forward it to you. 

Eileen Sears and Nanette Averett came to my house today, Tuesday, 18 August 2009, at 12:30 PM for our Bobbet research in Suffolk County, England research meeting.   I had a surprise for them, my pedigree chart from William Bobbet and Kathryn back a few generations with the matching family group records with all the notes from the research documentation they have given me.  The ladies came with nothing else to offer me and were greatly surprised when I presented each with the pedigree chart and family group records and a few other items.  We celebrated with Mexican Wedding cookies as we all had lunch prior to our meeting.

The above is a pedigree chart and of course I have more documentation...lots of notes.


Keith, I have this on both my private myfamily site and my tree you have access to, but not yet on rootsweb as I need to copy everything off of my living relatives tree to the tree with no living.

You in another communication hoped we would have one more thing to research.

Being I have the Bobbet line far back as I do, Eileen has one more Will in the late 1400's to transcribe.  Other than that, the ladies have completed finding all the documents they can find for the 1500's.


It is with great appreciation I have for what my/our Bobbet in Suffolk County, England researchers Eileen Sears and Nanette Averett have accomplished.  Dr. Amy Harris did give me her best 2 students.  Eileen has one remaining genealogy class and Nanette is graduated and will take a course in genealogy beginning soon, both classes with Dr. Amy Harris. 

Keith, if you like, you have my permission to put this email on your Bobbet web site.  Thank you for your support Keith. 

Best regards,

Marsha Berry"
