I've been continuing my family history work ..I'm trying to trace my real GGG-grand parents ...It's proving a little difficult ...... GG-Grand parents had the same surname when the married ! my name is not that common a name but there you go two separate families tied by blood some 300 + years previously I'm told ... So ... GGG-granparents are William and Ann D' and George and Ann D' ..no issue there really except that there are also in the same villiage another two families William and Ann D' and George and Ann D' of about the same age ...... All with kids and all married etc just before the censuses began .....

I think I have the right william as when GG-GF married they used a church that marked a parish that GGG-GF William attended ...... So the link I think is there and strong enough to use .... Would like more evidence though .....

But try and sort out the Georges !!! no chance ........................The two churches in question are about a roads width apart from each other and the 4 families lived in the same villiage ...Probably even drank in the same pubs together ......

I've not just stuck with my surname either I've worked along my maternal line and along the maternal lines of my grand parents .... All nicely packaged in a database but Oh Boy it's getting complicated and time consuming ...

My next plan is to host it all on a web site ... I've been scouring E'bay and the like buying up old pictures and postcards of the Norfolk area and portsmouth and Fettercairn in scotland .... one day I'll get time to do it ......

Pictures are from Mt Holdsworth again ....in the main .. The others of from a reserve created utilising the old railway tracks in the area ... It's a very peaceful place when not overly visited as can happen at times .....

Very nice piccies indeed. Hope work is not too ghastly - at least with one side of your brain you can still be remembering where you have been rambling with your camera, while the other side of your brain is more taken up with the grind of work.
