In a locked entry in my own journal (ems, duh) I tell a story about my Grandma, and blissirritated responds with her own ancestoral history:
My great great great.... grandfather stole a silver button and some wool once. And that was how the Sargent line got shipped out as convicts to Australia.QWP, of course.
We then began the mandatory inbreeding, moved to Tasmania and THAT'S the story of how come I don't have a chin. :D
