  • British Isles Ancestry - please put the county

    I expect I'm preaching to the choir here.

    I know that sometimes all you know about an ancestor is that they are from England, Scotland or Ireland for example, but if you do know more please put it in your tree.

    After several months I have just worked out which line someone is connected to us on but their tree just says England for the grandmother and has no place mentioned for the grandfather. The tree only goes back that far. They are quite a close match so I searched for the marriage of her grandparents. I found it in England and in the same city the grandmother of the sisters I manage kits for was born.

    Over at Gedmatch a mutual match with a fourth cousin confirms this city is the link (our mutual ancestors were born about 1810).
