Welcome to the Ed and Pat Forguson home page. We are retired and living in Florida in a 1994 34-foot Holiday Rambler motor home. This is a substantial upgrade from our 27-foot TravelMaster. We spend most of our summers traveling to visit family and friends. The Christmas holidays include a mandatory visit to play with the 5 grandchildren in Pennsylvania.
We are dedicated Square and Round Dancers. Having just completed classes in the C1 level for squares,we are dancing 3 or 4 times a week so that we don't forget what we have learned.
Ed works on other people's computers wherever we travel,just for fun.
Pat's latest hobby is watercolor painting,and to her own amazement, a number of her pieces have been sold, including portraits (see Artwork). She also enjoys counted-cross stitch and always has several projects underway, some for years!
Genealogy Ed and his mother Pearl Forguson are very active in genealogy research and currently have over 200,000 relatives identified and entered into a computer database. Our travels almost always include a stop at a state genealogical library. The genealogy section of our web page includes all of our direct line ancestors; it is focused mostly on all the older Forgusons and Greenlees. Our ancestors connect to the Royal families of Europe through Alexander Forguson to the Martha Harris line. In addition, links to other sites are provided where they connect to our line.
Cruising Sailing has been a major part of our life for 30 years, beginning with small boat racing on inland lakes. For seven years (1992-1999) we lived on a 34-foot Tartan Classic sailboat. We spent our winters (January to May) in the Bahamas, traveling the Intra-coastal Waterway from Baltimore, MD, to Florida in the fall. After a few trips, we began docking in Daytona Beach rather than taking the boat north for the summer. At the Cruising link we describe a little about our boat, and have included a few articles on some of our trips.
News Here are a few of our newsletters. Pat tries to outline what we do with our unstructured but busy lives and the people we see. We are always amazed at the interest generated by this news, even by those with completely different interests.
