In honor of this year's Leap Day, I searched through my family tree database for any February 29th births. I found exactly...one.
Isabella McAleer was born on 29 Feb 1856 in Birtley, County Durham, England.
Isabella is my half second great great aunt. Or, she is the half sister of my great great grandmother, Mary Ann McAleer McBride. Or, we share a common ancestor in Bernard McAleer. Ah, it's complicated!
Happy Birthday Isabella!
