Hello everyone


New member
Hi my name is Dee and i live in North Lincolnshire, UK. I am trying to trace my Mums Dad's side of the family and they are proving to be a hard lot to find!! They are the Jacobs family from the Wiltshire area mainly Wilton. I have hit every brick wall going i think and have also been told that we have Jewish connections, but like most people with the surname Jacobs i think this could just be a myth as up to now have found no proof of this and hope to one day either find the link or rule it out. I have been very lucky on my Dads side of the family and have his family history going back to 125AD, being very lucky to have had all this information passed down to me which has taken a member of the family many many years to put together so to them i am very gratefull, i just need help with the Jacobs as most of you know there are millions of them. So if anyone can give me any help or advice i would really appreciate it and i look forward to taking part in the forums.
