If you've ever wondered what happens to old Easter bunnies, look no further than Spain. ("Friskies with Chicken & Bunny"). I bought this in 1989 so perhaps Spanish cats have moved on. My excuse for posting this picture was that someone told me recently that there was a Basque province in France (Spain has adjacent Basque provinces) and one of them was named "Soule." She wondered if anyone was pursuing the idea that George's surname might be a place name, indicating his family's place of origin. The area was under English administration from 1261 to 1449 due to royal marriages and the 100 Years War. Soule Kindred of America is one of the organizations using DNA evidence and genealogical sleuthing to look for George's origins. At their last annual meeting the project was described as being limited to Britain with outreach to the Netherlands (which was ruled by the Spanish king specifically in the 1500s.) Do any of you "purebred Soules" out there have DNA evidence that links you in any way to Basque Country?
