Good evening Mary.

I was interested in a friend's lineage through the Lingo family after looking at some of her album photos. I had never seen the Lingo name before so thought I would see what was online and surprise her with it. I showed her what I found and she was underwhelmed so I never pursued it.

I would be interested "if" I could follow her lineage back a couple of generations but at the moment there is a 100 year gap. I would need her help and she is/was indifferent on the subject so am not sure what to say.

I am, however, interested in your Plantagenet comment as I am a descendent of Hamline Plantagenet and done a lot of snooping on a site called "Descendants of William the Conqueror," http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~conqueror/genealogy_html/i740.html . The site author has not put any illegitimate descendants on it yet, one of whom would be Hamline, so I am not on it. But, it is an interesting read, albeit a lengthy one. After a close look I now realize that the royal families had a lock on politics from Norway to Italy for a thousand years!! I found the pilgrim Edward Doty a distant cousin of Cornwallis, the man who was in charge of the 1776 British Army in the American Revolution. And, being a history nut, I found this fascinating.

So, where do you fit into the Plantagenet puzzle?

bye, and thanks for writing! dj
