Welsh Jen,thanks for that Caryad.A comment if I may be so bold?My hunting started with what i thought I knew,took me to Ireland,Wales,Scotland,England,then hither and thither and yon! World wide,and now I'm back in my own backyard!People of The Name within ten minutes walk of my old home.Its enough to make you mad,and Never,was I made aware of this.Not only that,the finding of these rellies sorted out a few puzzles that had bothered me for years,needless to say,definite proof of bloodline is in the much brighter future!!
SO,My point being,look under your nose.
               Regards,Goggy.
