|From Euridge-Uridge Get Together|
After lunch at The Plant Cafe, Pier 3, we went to the Fine Arts Meseums of San Francisco including the de Young Musuem in Golden Gate Park, and the Legion of Honor in Lincoln Park. Patty had arranged for us to see the Birth of Impressionism, a special exhibition from the Musée d’Orsay in Paris - a superb experience.
Patty & Mary's great-grandfather was Walter George Uridge, who was born in 1865 in Chailey, Sussex. Walter emigrated in 1881 to California, USA, and was naturalized in 1904. He settled in Fresno, California, and was joined in 1896 by his cousin Albert Willsher Uridge.
Sadly Patty, Mary, and I are not related - as the DNA tests prove. However our ancestors shared the same unique surname. Similarily, we share the common interest in researching, and documenting our family history.
More photographs of our memorable day are available in the Euridge-Uridge Get Together photograph album. Many thanks to Patty for organizing such a wonderful day.
