  George FORFAR – 1848 - 1923 Ahnentafel Number 28 Context for discovery: This biography was written as part of the 52 ancestors in 52 weeks exercise devised by Amy Johnson Crow.   You can join in too here. The theme for this month is Social and this week is food and drink. Amy says: Few things bring back memories like food does. This week, write about an event that prompted a special meal, an ancestor who was a really good (or really bad!) cook, or a food that always makes you think of someone in your family. George was my 2 nd great-grandfather.   He was a grocer by trade, so we are sure to find out plenty about food and drink. I must preface this article with a trigger warning as some of the details may be quite upsetting to some readers. The map above shows all the places I have been able to identify that George Forfar lived in the UK and Australia.  Holy Trinity Scottish Episcopal Church Tom Sargent on geograph.org.uk   Childhood Birth Date/Place : George
