Hello. I've been researching my tree for about twenty years now and repeatedly come to a halt somewhere. If I'm patient, and just go and work on other branches instead, then the information I need will often appear as more and more stuff gets put online. But, I have some dead ends that appear to be very well blocked off and no obvious way round them. So, as you seem to have a vast collective wisdom I shall throw some of my ancestors, and some of their little mysteries, into the open and hope that someone will find those chinks in the brick wall for me!
