Just found this forum and noticed your request for anyone related to James. I am unsure of what relation Jim is to myself, but my Grandad was named Joseph and was born around the turn of the century (not had chance to do any research yet). He had at least 4 sons and two daughters, one being John (Jack) my own dad. All the Aindows in the Town that I know about (from the phone book) are related, either cousins, aunts, uncles plus borthers and sisters. I currently live in Scotland but the next time I'm down in Wigan I will try to find out more info and post it on the forum and it may help expand on the Aindown lineage. Also i read somewhere that Aindows have a trait for long arms, this appears to run in our branch of the family too. There also appears to be a trend for the females to suffer minor heart deffects, bothe my aunt, sister and daughter all having "holes" in the septal area at birth, does thisappear in any other branches of the clan?
