Martin Family of Stithians Cornwall
« on: Sunday 29 March 20 11:49 BST (UK) »
Morning all

Iím using the coronavirus/ Covid 19 lockdown as a prompt to start digging into my motherís family. It turns out that her grandparents were Martins from Stithians in Cornwall. I would be very interested, therefore, to see The Martins Of Stithians Cornwall by Edward Martin in paper or electronic format. Can anyone help me with this please?

Her grandmother was a Midlen born Spargo in Stithians. I see that Mr Martin also wrote books about other families in the village. Does anyone know how I could check them?

Thank you for any help you can give me.

Dear GG

Thanks. I found it there first but wasn't sure that that site is still active so I've emailed them. It was also quite expensive so I was hoping that I might be able to pick a copy second-hand. And I've seen reference to a CD version. I'd be interested to know if they are available.
