Humor in the parish records

I enjoyed reading Rachel Murphy's The Joy of Parish Registers over at the Irish Family History blog. Just as much fun was the comment left by a reader regarding a poor fellow who died in the midst of a card game and a woman who had difficulty "settling" properly after she passed away.

For a light look at some interesting and personal comments in otherwise dry record logs, take a few minutes to visit Rachel's article.
