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.
I have created a Free Space page,
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.

I don't think my Grandmother ever knew her great-grandmother migrated to America

I need guidance for merging 2 Burwash profiles Richard Pudland and Richard Putlande - the name recorded in 16th C seems to have been Pudland(e) or occ. even Publand, but later 17th C up until today you only see Putland(e), would it be wrong to merge the first into the 2nd mentioned ? or should it be the other way round ? +/or should I amend one profile name first? Thanks - Jeremy
