I was inspired by a TV program to start looking at my family history in 1979. My grandfather visited me shortly after this (a rare occurrence as he lived in Lancashire and I was in Kent), and I innocently asked questions about his parents and upbringing. The questions were answered hesitantly and rather vaguely, he seemed very uncomfortable and the subject was quickly dropped.

After investing in my first few BMD certificates, and going down a few blind alleys, I made the discovery that my grandfather's parents had never married, a fact that he obviously knew and was very sensitive about. And the few answers that he'd supplied to my questions were an incredible work of fiction. By then I was well and truly hooked into discovering the truth, but I never mentioned any of my findings to my grandfather. He did however send me a photo of his father, for which I was extremely grateful.

Many thanks for the suggested merges of Harry Dumbrell & Edith. I can't imagine how that doubling happened. Paul

Hi Carol. Sorry to undo a correction you made to Mary Ann (Perkins) Hirons , Perkins-11824. The place name is Tanworth not Tamworth. They are two different places. From the sources you will see that Tanworth is by Solihull south of Birmingham, while Tamworth is north of Birmingham. Tanworth is also known as Tanworth-in-Arden, the record does not state that but the District is Solihull so it can't be Tamworth.

Thanks Adam.

On Sarah Foreman-518 page there is a note that you think 806 is the same person. However when I put in 806 the name wasn't Foreman at all. Sarah Foreman is my 3rd great grandmother.
