Hello Kay

Thank you for posting on the page for Sarah (Sanford) Melhuish about her maiden name. In fact, according to the Changes tab, this mysterious father and new spouse were added only 15 minutes before your comment. Neither had sources, and both are incorrect. Her maiden name of Sanford is proven by the original parish registers. Thanks for taking the time to point this out, though. Good catch!

Hi Kay

Yes it might help if you could give me some advise about the how to explain the DNA connection with the people you've mentioned

Hi, thanks for the advice. I look for records of the times and movement patterns of family groups. When stuck, I allow another group member to supply advice. I have an MA in Secondary Education and much experience researching with an acknowledgment in "Plant Physiology". There is much data that I will transfer from a pay site to this free site at my leisure. Thank you for your interest.

Thank you Kay, I am new to the DNA confirmation. Please check if I am doing this correctly. I am concerned that perhaps the sibling shouldn’t be confirmed, however, I thought I read that they were. Teri
