Genea-blogger John Newmark (who writes the TransylvanianDutch blog) started his own Monday blog theme many months ago called Amanuensis Monday.
What does "amanuensis" mean?John offers this definition:"A person employed to write what another dictates or to copy what has been written by another."
I have been working on my ancestor Robert Day born about 1604 In Ipswich, Co, Suffolk, England and died 04 September 1648 at Hartford, Connecticut. Robert first married Mary last name not known in England. Robert and Mary emigrated from Ipswich, England to Boston in April 1634 aboard the ship Elizabeth. Mary died in 1634 in Cambidge Massachusetts at the age of 29. Robert remarried Editha Stibbins in 1635. They had four children Thomas, Sarah, Mary and John. I am a descendant of John. Robert Day is my 8th Great Grandfather.
A picture of this memorial will be added to my family notebook on Robert Day for future generations to see.
