Hello all

Just joined the forum today and just wanted to say a quick hello!

I'm relatively new to family research only having began a couple of months ago but as I'm sure many of you will agree its so very addictive!

My Grandfather was one of 10 children, all his brothers and sisters and parents went under the name of Haines but my grandfathers name was always known as Haynes, I'm eager to discover why this was.

Its great to meet you all!
