I feel really chuffed after 2 months of picking up threads and 4 archive trips I've finally put the pieces together. I have suceeded in linking 2 families together which I felt must be related. Today I found the evidence to prove it. That brings a whole lot more relatives onto my family tree and takes me back to 1700 for one branch of our family. I feel like jumping up and down. Unfortunately my family are underwhelmed.
