Information about my 9x great grandfather John Lazell has been a bit of a humt because of the various spellings of his family name. Three of them have been Lazell, Lasell, and Lassell. Finally I found this in History of the town of Hingham, Massachusetts on the Internet Archives:

I have researched the families of several of my friends and learned I am related (by marriage) to my best friend of 50 years and another good friend of 40 years.

I discovered my stepdaughter and her husband are related by one marriage, which is truly amazing since one family is from Illinois/Missouri and the other from New York. At one time the two families crossed paths in Ohio.

Thanks for including my best Genealogy article. It’s very much appreciated. I started new blog and first time witten articles Visit My Blog --
