Mysteries are an accepted part of Family History research - but we DO like to find the answers!!

Information (gleaned from hours spent on family based interviews, record searches, travel to far-away places and with contributions from a number of keen researchers), is included from as far back as is known, up to Grandparents of my generation.

Please click on any of the names below if you would like to know more about a particular line.

With any luck - maybe, just maybe - we can help each other
