    Family Connections Needed!
    #1
    Soooo in my attempt to do this month's intro HoM homework assignment, I realized most of my characters don't have any established ancestry. I'm looking for various grandparents, great-grandparents, etc. that might fit!

    Paternal grandmother (for @'Holly Scrimgeour'): A mother for her father, Benedict Scrimgeour. He was born in 1828, though the eldest child in the family was born in 1824. She'd likely be born from 1800-1805. UCPB is required, and I'd prefer she be connected to an existing family that might have established great-grandparents so I don't have to bullshit those! The grandmother in question would have grandchildren in the Scrimgeour, Lestrange, and Flint family.

    Maternal Grandparents (for @'Handsome Whitledge'):
    A family for Handsome's mother, Hattie Whitledge. She's already dead, but I never established what her maiden name even was? Should be from an UCAB family. I don't care if there's played cousins or not because honestly there's enough Whitledge cousins already.

    Grandparents? Aunts & Uncles? (for @'Odette Hoch'): While currently a vampire, I'll be bringing her back as a LCHB witch come the move under her original name, Odette Ravenhurst. I'm looking for any possible connections there for the move! Connections could range from your character's mother being a Ravenhurst to a surname for Odette's mother.

    So he isn't active atm, but I used to play Barry Wee Willie Winkle and had a whole thing for his descendants; if you're really strapped to fill in any of these his family tree is very flexible. It also gives you plenty to write about for a HoM project because he's an HP book canon and I wrote a pretty massive profile on his life. :P Even the connections that were "taken" in that thread are mostly taken by people who are now inactive so feel free to raid as you please.

    My UCPB family is the Pettigrews, and Thom's dad would have been in the same generation as Holly's parents apparently so that's probably a no-go.

    We also have a very detailed Dippet family tree with some branches of non-Dippet PB Armando descendants still out there, but you'd have to holler at Olive if you're interested in that since they would be closer to him than to Ophelia! Everyone in her branch is dead, obvs. :P
