My maiden name is Jayne Sheward.My father was James Joseph Sheward and I was born and brought up in Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Stourbridge in what is now the West Midlands, England.My father came from a large family of, I think, 6 children. Two sets of aunts/uncles emigrated to California in the 60s. Of them,I only rememember my aunt Margaret and cousins Robert and Linda. I didn't know my grandmother or grandfather as they were hidden in family history, but I found out late that my grandmother lived in Ladywood, Birmingham when she was quite old.I also remember an uncle David and cousin Diane living in Birmingham.I think my grandmother and perhaps my grandfather were Irish.There was certainly a strong Irish link on my father's side. Does this mean anything to anyone out there?Many thanks.
