Search beyond both great-great grandfathers at a dead end

+2 votes
I have had no luck getting beyond my paternal (Campion-678) and maternal (Leonard-10913) grandfathers. I believe I'm looking for roots in the British Isles but I've hit a wall and I'm wondering if anyone can suggest next steps?

I am adding a few sources to some of your Campion profiles showing more exact dates that should help you when researching.  You can try which is free but you have to register.

I believe these are the parents of James Campion-678.  See what you can find.

Hi David!  

Welcome to WikiTree!

DNA can sometimes help provide clues that can break down brick walls....Have you considered it?

If you'd like some more info on it, here's a good introductory blog post from Roberta Estes.  

She has lots other info as well, in other posts, such as this one about what to do when you get your results.
