    Re: Tom's ancestral house.

    The first is incorrect because the opening clause does not contain a verb and you have misspelt "ancestral"
    The second is incorrect because you have misspelt "hereditary" and that is the wrong word anyway.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Once again, tufguy, you have repeated a mistake (hereditary) that has been pointed out to you. You are wasting your time and ours. Please pay more attention to the responses you receive.

    Re: Tom's ancestral house.

    If you think a response from a mod or senior member is wrong, question it. Don't just ignore it.

    The examples you found on Google do not refer to a building that has been in the family for generations.
