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.
This started out as a to-do list for me, but I am now hoping for some volunteers to help out. This Free Space page lists possible connections that I've found using on-line trees, that are waiting to be investigated.

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.
Hi Carol, thank you so much for contributing to the Sandringham Strollers on the 2018 Source-a-Thon. It is always tremendous having you on our team. You are such a great competitor and so supportive of other team members, so very much appreciated!
Hi, Carol. I was just updating the profiles of Dolly Westgate (a 4th cousin of my wife) and her spouse James Taylor when I can across a notices that these profiles were officially closed. Can you tell me How this comes about?
Thanks, Carol for sorting out my Stephen Crisford who should have been Thomas Crisford, and Ann (Unknown) who became Waters. How on earth you managed to get your head around all this is quite beyond me - I'm sure you'll go to heaven after all this!
