Hello Lesley, It certainly sounds like there will be a connection, proving it is going to be the problem! How far back have you been able to verify your research with certificates? Have you found any Wills that mention names or places to give you a hint? I do not know how many of the family disappeared due to work committments or whether their lines simply ran out or have not been researched any further. There is definitely a lot of work for you before we can even begin to make a connection but I am very interested so please, do let me know how it is going as you peel back the layers. And, do not give up! Seeya Soonly, Michelle KAHLER, Ipswich, QLD, Australia.
