Pippin's aunt is Merry's mother, so they are cousins. Now Frodo's a bit harder.. hang on..... Ok Frodo's grandmother (Mirabella) was a child of the Old Took so that would make her the sister of Hildigrim who was Merry and Pippin's grandfather. So to conclude it all, Merry and Pippin are cousins and Frodo is their second cousin once removed??? i dunno all this "once removed" stuff about cousins, but i hope i wasn't too confusing with that explanation.

Hmmm.. I guess I'll take it.

Which towns in the Shire had "Officials"
aka the Thain, Mayor, Master, and Warden.

I don't know whether this will cover all of them, but I know the Mayor lived in Mechel Delving, and the Thain was in Tookland. I'm not finding any other listings.

I dredged this up from the second page, and thought I'd throw out a question to see if anyone picks it up.....

Here's an easy one to start with. During the reign of Aragorn, where were the three largest library collections for hobbits located?

(He, he....in real life, I was once a librarian.)

I'll take a wild, unsubstantiated guess, and say Tuckborough, Buckland, and Undertowers.

Sophia,

Sorry I am late getting back. The birthday party and awards has taken up some time.

Your wild guess is basically correct. The section of the prologue on Shire Records mentions Great Smials (Tookborough), Undertowers, and Brandy Hall (Buckland).

Your turn now....

I must disagree, the were first cousins once removed. Silvia's father Sadoc and Orgulas's granfather Madoc were brothers.

Brandobras (Bullroarer) Took, he was 4'5" and was famous for being able to ride a horse. As legend has it he invented Golf [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]. Spelling may be off as I'm working from memory.
