"Hvad laver et billede af Kay Aldridge på jeres hjemmeside?" kan jeg allerede høre halvdelen af jer sige. Og den anden halvdel siger sikkert "Hvem hulen er Kay Aldridge?"

Kay Aldridge var en amerikansk fotomodel og skuespillerinde. Hun hed i virkeligheden Katharine Gratten Aldridge, og i 1930erne var hun Amerikas mest fotograferede kvinde.

Hvad har hun så med os at gøre? Hun voksede op på Bladensfield, et hus, der er bygget hundredevis af år tidligere af John Jenkins, Wally's tip-tip-tip-tip-tip-oldefar.

Jeg elsker genealogi.

"What's a photo of Kay Aldridge doing on your homepage?" I can already hear half of you asking. And the other half is probably mumbling "who the heck is Kay Aldridge?"

Kay Aldridge was an American model and actress. She was actually born Katharine Gratten Aldridge, and in the 1930's she was America's most photographed woman.

So. What's she got to do with us? Well, she grew up at Bladensfield, a house which was built hundreds of years earlier by John Jenkins, Wally's 6 x great-grandfather.

I love genealogy.
