By "poking around" I meant nothing more than than inquisitively investigating.Nothing more.I respect you in documenting your offspring's line.They deserve that.I have no comment on the resources that were mentioned as I'm not qualified.I haven't done it. Sorry we can't be more help. And what is an "intact surname"? A rookie question I suppose.And yes, if I have an interest it would be with the "direct line", as that's who, what & where I came from.
By the way, how's your familyWhere are they? Have had no news in years.
