Events in My Family Tree: January 18

The trouble with doing a daily meme is that it is really easy to fall behind!  Somehow the last two days just slipped away, and I wasn't able to post anything to my blog.  Luckily, it isn't that difficult to catch up, which is what I'm doing now.  January 18, of course, proved to be a busy day for events in my family.
