Some Amazing New Discoveries On Ancestry.Com

Everyone I have been exploring the family of my grand mother (mother’s mother) Margaret Eunice Fair. Her family goes back many centuries . One of her and my ancestors is King Henry II (1133 AD-1188 AD) of England. He was made famous in the William Shakespeare play Becket and in the 1964 movie Becket. (Peter O’Toole played King Henry II and Richard Burton played Sir Thomas Becket.)

Tonight I made another amazing discovery. The French Count Of Boulogne Geoffrey (1061-18 July, 1100) died fighting in the Holy Lands during the Crusades. I am learning so much about my family and it’s fascinating!!!

I am a man who has lived n 6 of the 7 continents. I first arrived in Africa on April 18, 1981. Africa has been a part of my life since. I spent 8 months living in a Xhosa village in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. I was given he nickname Tatamkulu Africa. In Xhosa it means "Grandfather Africa." In April of 1994 I was allowed to vote in the first democratic election in South Africa..I was honored to be part of such a historical moment. It was a beautiful and a magical day.
