Last night (18th December 2008), I was looking through the boxes containing the papers and records I had collated over 37 years relating to my family history. I have decided to get all of the information down on paper before I finally join my ancestors.
The first record that I pulled out of the box was the death and burial record for my maternal great grandfather, James Henry Thomas. He had died in Dacca on the 18th December 1887 and was buried the following day at St. Thomas' Church, Dacca. I couldn't believe my eyes. It was exactly 121 years ago to the day that he died! What an amazing coincidence!
