Genealogy Skills Are Useful

Abby's picture, a online news source, ran an interesting article today showing how genealogy detective skills can be useful for all sorts of things!

It's all about a ring that was lost many years ago on a beach. Danny Hall from Salt Lake City is called "The Gentleman Genealogist." He managed to track down the descendants of the ring owners from a small inscription on the ring, "CCD to MAL Dec. 25, 1880."

His awesome detective skills led to a marriage of Charles C. Dixon and Maranda A. Lewis with a marriage day of May 12, 1881... and then traced down the descendants, who happened to be joined together for a family reunion in New Hampshire.

So keep up those skills, no telling where they can take us.

Thanks for the tip of this great news story from @marianpl on Twitter!
