Eileen, all you need to do to post to the list is send email to

That will go out to everyone who is on the list. Thanks for your
contribution :-) ]

It is part of a Chapter my Great Grandmother and Great Aunt had written and had
published in John S Wurts, Magna Charta Volume 8. I know some researchers
think these volumes are worthless but one must understand that the Magna
Charta series were individual researches who were paying to have their
research published. I suppose in that light it can be viewed as you would a
submission on rootsweb or a FTM file. I only followed the chapter down to
what related to the Lovelace family. I don't think the rest of it would be
of interest to your subscribers. I have not spent a lot of time working on
it but have caught a few date errors. If anyone finds any other errors
please understand they are not intentional and it is research I inherited.
Anyway I think it will add nicely a little more history for the family and
the chapter can also be used as a record source to join the National Society
Magna Charta Dames and Barons under the Lovelace line if anyone was
interested. Here is their url for curiosity sake :-)
