This happened to my husband. We both did our dna: mine was as expected but his showed lots of cousin matches in the 200-900 cm range, all related to each other but not obviously to him. We also had not a single match searching with his uncommon but not that rare surname. So an NPE was assumed and his sister agreed to test with everyone expecting it to be at grandparents level. Unfortunately, the results showed her to be his half sister. He found this really difficult at first but has come to terms pretty well now. His father is the man who raised him and we donít know the circumstances of his conception to have any views on it. However, his sister has asked him not to tell his side of the family so as not to shade his motherís memory for his siblings as she died fairly young. This was difficult as it does seem secretive.

For us it was quite easy, with all the high matches, to work out that his ď fatherĒ must be one of three brothers. Strangely, the close matches who had been very keen to work out the link went very quiet once the NPE was found.

As it goes, his genetic ancestry is very close to where we live so in a way itís a little more interesting- theyíre still ag labs  just not the ones we thought they were!!

Good luck with your journey

World War Two / Re: Did my great grandfathers serve?

The 1939 register was taken on 29th September and according to this http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/british/britain_wwtwo/ff1_conscription.shtml
registration started a little later so  his being a shop assistant certainly would not necessarily exclude your grandfather Stones serving later

My daughter put a post on an IOW Facebook page and itís been suggested that itís Wheelerís Bay, apparently used for unloading provisions, particularly coal, onto the beach. There is a picture which looks similar. Sorry, another huge picture.

Hi Jo....It's not as early as you think, it looks more like Edwardian to me. Is it a postcard back?

hi Carol. No, itís bigger than that, a framed print. My daughter said sheíll carefully try to open it when she gets home and see if thereís anything on the back.
Treetotal, Iíll get her to check Appleby and The Chine,

Many thanks all,

Jo

Hello everyone,

Not sure if I should put this here or the Hampshire board so please feel free to move It if thatís best.

My daughter, who worked on the IOW for a couple of years is back there on holiday and bought this great picture in a charity shop. She canít place it and weíre not sure of itís period although Iím guessing 1870s.

If anyone knows more weíd be glad to hear it,

Thanks,
Jo. Edited to add: itís a big picture so slide it to see the rest of it
