Six Degrees of Separation

My mother’s cousin’s husband’s grandmother lived in Austria prior to 
World War II. The grandmother hired a painter to decorate her dining room. That painter was Adolph Hitler! Grandmother said she would never have allowed that young man in her house had she known what he would later do!

This tale has been orally passed down from the Austrian Grandmother to John Tudyman to his wife to my mother and finally to me!


  1. That is scary! Imagine having that man under your roof? I hope you write this story down and it continues to be part of your family history.

  2. Heather,
    Thank you for posting. Last year I had started visiting your blog, Nutfield Genealogy. I was taking Boston University's Genealogical Research course and one of my fellow classmates mentioned your blog! During the year, I lost track of your blog. So happy to have found you again!
