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.

Carol: Hello. I notice you are proposing a merge of Smithers-786 into Smithers-725 & I agree. Problem is Profile Manager (John Brock) is, I believe, overseas for some time. I have a direct interest in this (Smithers) family too & wonder if your interest was personal or purely housekeeping ? Phil (Grace-883)

I clicked on your Meet Our Members connection finder and it said "Carol Keeling is 36 Degrees from Michele Konyndyk". Wow! That's the first time I've had anyone that I don't know actually connected. I'm new here though, but it's still pretty cool!! Great interview, by the way! Very interesting!
