Excellent, and great that it was local to me.

In all the censuses Robert Lowes was "clerk in shipping house " or similar, no hint of all his great work to obtain the half day holiday. Just shows that the census should be just the beginning of the search, there is often a lot more beyond that.

Looking forward to the rest of the series.

Yes Elaine......I enjoyed that. But I wonder where the McKellens came from. Scotland, at a guess.
As wonderful as WDYTYA is, it seems that half the tree gets missed out most of the time, and only focus on those that have an outstanding/interesting story to tell.
It's about time each subject has more than 55 minutes to tell more of their family history, over 3 or 4 episodes, if there is more to tell.

No wonder the producers of WDYTYA haven't asked me to appear.:rolleyes::2fun:
