Party Like It's 1749

I've always thought that Foxeysquirrel's kit would be perfect for genealogy pages, where you don't have any images of your ancestors. Finally got around to try it.

Catharina Harkman was my great great great great great great great grandmother. She was born on October 12, 1711 in Romfartuna, Västmanland [Sweadish county], and was the daughter of vicar Widich Harkman and his wife Brita Lidman. Catharina marries Johannes Gezelius who also was a vicar. Together they have seven children, before Johannes has his divorce granted from his wife in 1750, "as she drinks, smokes, dances in her underwear and fraternizing with farm-workers and their likes". She dies in 1751 from edema.

Drinks, smokes dances in her underwear? Sounds like someone that is a lot of fun! I love how you know so much about one of your ancestors from so long ago.
Wow! This is a wonderful page, Eva. I was thinking divorce was unusual in this time frame then had to catch myself. It was only unusual if the petitioner was a woman. Men could get one any time they wanted. She must have been quite the character!
