FEATURED WEB PAGE: MEDEIVAL & ISLAMIC MEDITERRANEAN COINS

Roger deWardt Lane of Hollywood, Florida (and formerly of
Orrington, Maine) writes: "I found this web site very interesting
as it has coins and history of some of my family which we have traced
back a thousand years to a French Knight and then, Count Roger I and
King Roger II of Sicily.  The family line then goes back to England
and via Thomas Rogers, Sr and Thomas Rogers, Jr - both of who came
over on the Mayflower.

Thomas Rogers, Jr became a farmer in Massachusetts and generations
later the State (now Maine) sold land, 100 acres to Jesse Rogers for
fourteen pounds (about $75. at the time) which as passed down to my
grandparents.  My grandmother was Susie Rogers.  My Mother named my
first name for the family, but dropped the 'S'.

I have the whole story on a family CD-ROM 'My Life Story'.  This
is the first time I have found reference to the coins of the time."
