Since its original discovery in 1985, archaeologists have uncovered some 222 skeletons in a Longobard medieval necropolis in Veneto, Northern Italy. Each one has a grisly story to tell—the woman with two brooches; two greyhounds; a horse without a head. But one in particular continues to leave researchers stumped.
In tomb T US 380, archaeologists found the skeleton of a man in his mid-40s, dated to between the 6th and 8th centuries. He’s missing a hand. More unusually, he’d replaced it with a ingenious—if deadly—prosthesis: a knife.
From the outbreak of the war to the summer of 1915, this part of the front was held by French troops, who began the military cemetery in June 1915. It continued to be used by Commonwealth field ambulances and fighting units, but burials practically ceased with the German withdrawal in February 1917. After the Armistice, 15 of the graves (Plot II, Row M, Graves 4-18) were brought in from scattered positions east of the cemetery. The cemetery now contains 528 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, the French graves having been removed to other burial grounds. (Source: CWGC)
Foncquevillers was in British hands in 1915 and 1916. On 1 July 1916, Gommecourt Wood was attacked by the 46th (North Midland) Division, and the Southern part of the village by the 56th (London) Division. The attack met with temporary success, but could not be sustained; and Gommecourt remained a salient in the German line until 27 February 1917, when it was evacuated. It was never retaken by the Germans; at the end of their offensive of March 1918, it was just within the British lines. (Source: CWGC)
Amanda Leigh Moore was born on April 10, 1984, in Nashua, New Hampshire, to Stacy (née Friedman), a former news reporter who once worked for the Orlando Sentinel, and Donald Moore, a pilot for American Airlines. Moore was raised Catholic, but has since developed a “hodgepodge of things” that she believes. Moore’s ancestry is Russian Jewish (from her maternal grandfather), English, and Irish. She is the middle of three children with an older brother, Scott, and a younger brother, Kyle. When Moore was two months old, she and her family moved to Longwood, Seminole County, Florida, outside of Orlando, because of her father’s job. She attended Bishop Moore Catholic High School in Orlando, Florida from 1998 to 2002.
Bucquoy was taken by the 7th Division in March, 1917. It was partly lost in April 1918, after a prolonged and gallant defence by the 62nd (West Riding), 37th and 42nd (East Lancashire) Divisions; and it was cleared on the following 21st August. The cemetery was begun in March 1917, when 23 men of the 2nd Queen’s were buried in what is now Plot II, Row A. Thirteen graves of April-August 1918 were added (Plot II, Row B) in September 1918 by the 5th Division Burial Officer. (Source: CWGC)
Mutual aid, collaboration and free sharing are the basics of Geneanet which promotes and supports a number of collaborative projects.
Some weeks ago, we have launched a new indexing tool for all the Geneanet members. It has two levels (beginner and advanced) and the number of documents to index will depend on your available time (about a quarter of an hour, about one hour or several hours).
Two valuable collections have been made available to index: the “Index to passenger lists of vessels arriving at Baltimore, 1820-97” and the “War of 1812 Pension Files”.
Join the Geneanet collaborative indexing project and help other genealogists finding their ancestors in these collections!

Freedom on the Move from Cornell University is the first major digital database of fugitive slave ads from North America.
Readers of the May 24, 1796 Pennsylvania Gazette found an advertisement offering ten dollars to any person who would apprehend Oney Judge, an enslaved woman who had fled from President George Washington’s Virginia plantation, Mount Vernon. The notice described her in detail as a “light mulatto girl, much freckled, with very black eyes and bushy black hair,” as well as her skills at mending clothes, and that she “may attempt to escape by water… it is probable she will attempt to pass as a free woman, and has, it is said, wherewithal to pay her passage.”
