It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Find your roots!
Get DNA tested too!

So26-1-2-3-1 William de Somerville of Linton and Carnwath d c 1337
m Giles Herring dau of Sir John Herring of Gilmerton mentioned by BE1883 but not by TSP. Giles is mentioned as William's wife by BE1883 but not by TSP which shows her as second wife of his nephew William. For this we follow BE1883 as it reports that the lands of Gilmerton, Drum and Goodtrees came into the family by this marriage whilst TSP shows those lands as being passed to their nephew Thomas from his father rather than from his brother..

i Sir William Somerville of Linton and Carnwath d c1400
m Katherine Halliday, heiress of Moffat
a Thomas Somerville, 1st Lord b c1370, d 12.1444
BE1883 reports that Thomas was created a peer on 15.12.1430 but TSP, whilst accepting that others refer to him as the 1st Lord and whilst acknowledging that he was called to Parliament, specifically refers to his son as the 1st Lord. We follow BE1883 because its numbering system appears to be more often used than TSP's.
