When was your grandmother born, who were her parents, who did she marry, and have you found any other relatives of her?

Thank-you

Have you tried RootsChat's Surnames Interest Table?

Scroll down to the bottom of any RC page.
In the Dark Brown/Black section, underneath "Your Tools" you will find "Surname Interests.

Click on that; then Quick Search; then select the initial letter (M).
Then scroll through the M surnames until you find Masterson; click on that, and you will find a list of users researching Masterson! ;D

son born in Kinsale is my father (born 1908) first child of 13 born to Sarah & Mark.

Second child (Auntie Elizabeth) was born is Pewsey (1910).
all the others were born in Preston between 1911 & 1929, EXCEPT for one son, who was
born in Malta during Marks tour of duty. That son is called Frank and was born in 1921.

As you know about all their children, have you investigated their marriages, children, deaths, etc etc and looked on 192.com for them?

I haven't no.
I know some of them because they are my cousins, but with such a big family, people
move away, and you don't know who had how many children.
to be honest with you I'm not sure where I would look first.
All Marks and Sarah's children are now dead, except for one, who is now at a age he can't remember very much.
Should have started this search years ago.

If you get all the birth certificates for exact dates of birth, (or already know them) you will increase your chances of finding their deaths.

Those death certificates will have the informant's names on them, who may be a relation.

Some of your cousins may know of other cousins, so you slowly build up your network of contacts/links.

This site does not do living relatives - have you considered using other sites, that do?
