Re: "Katie Diggle - searching for Keith Winifield Diggle"
My last message posted was on 10 March 2003 and since then I have made a lot of progress in my research. My good luck started when a friend of my second cousin Albert Winfield Diggle (resident in Oregon, USA) saw the message and referred him to it. This resulted in a long telephone conversation with Albert and soon after my visit to the USA where I met my other second cousin, Albert's sister, Alberta Winfield and her two sons and daughter. That visit yielded more information about their Father, who was my uncle, and much more.
Katie's posted message came out of the blue and I didn't see it until yesterday. She is a member of the second part of the Family Tree that started when my paternal Grandfather, Samuel, married for a second time and had two more children, Bryan and Sheila. So he produced ten children in all. I have replied separately to Katie who is Bryan Diggle's grandchild.
I also discovered that my Grandfather Samuel Diggle died in High Wyckham, England in 1941 and is buried there in an unmarked grave.
Any other member of the family who is interested should go back to my March 10 2003 message which will show you which of the many Diggle families is ours.
And well done Katie!
Keith Winfield Diggle
