In a recent Carnival of Genealogy, more than 30 people blogged about which four ancestors they would invite for dinner. In "Who's for Dinner?", Brenda not only tells who she might invite but who she would not invite to dinner.
Not to invite under any circumstances is great-grandmother Isabella Campbell McFadyen (1845-1924). By all accounts she was an impossible visitor in her later life, descending on adult children without notice, making demands that exceeded all bounds of civilized hospitality, having the rude manners of an untutored dictator, and throwing each household into mass disarray. Bella would stay for months at a timeAt the moment, I can't think of anyone who would be on my "do not invite list". Check Brenda's blog to learn more about Isabella Campbell McFadyen.
