Greetings.

I'm currently trying to follow my mtDNA line. However have a major brick wall quite early on. I'm trying to discover the mother of my 3rd great grandmother Maud/Maude. I know who her father is, but have not been able to discover the mother.

The confusing part of it, is we got a couple different spellings. Maud and Maude. Wakely and Weakley and other variants.

The relationships I do know of so far are
Father - Charles Weakley/Wakely
Husband - William Pearce.
Children - May Pearce, Olive Pearce, Lily Pearce, William Pearce, Cartman Pearce, Joy Pearce, Ivy Pearce and Violet Pearce.

I will now post what I've found so far for Maud/Maude

      Thank you for sharing your finds! I will take a look into them :) I had seen a marriage certificate for him and Emma Offer, looking at her birth she would of been under 18 when Maude was born. So I didn't think much of it when first saw it, but will take a more indeph look into her as I might of gotten the wrong birth date for Emma before.
