what a day of discovery
« on: Monday 04 February 19 13:07 GMT (UK) »
Some many years back (WE) on here discovered the very sad suicides of husband and wife after their son had died...

I wont go into full details unless you need them.. anyhow..

It was very sad.. of course.

I then at the time left their descendants - thinking I could find no more  or not very much more on them.

Well Yesterday I picked them up again and WOW

have completed the children at last.... as far as I can anyway --

There were so many dead ends and worrying lack of partners  -- that I felt the suicides had taken there toll and -- maybe the descendants didnt want to carry the line on.

However eventually found that out of the 4 children I can follow the line to 1951 which means they more than likely are still out there.. :)

feel good factor..

Well done xin  :D 

Just shows that putting things on hold and revisiting later can yield results... so many more new records online nowadays.
