I haven't seen your other thread but I will have a look now.

One thought - you say you've done shared matches with Henry and their shared matches, have you done the same with the daughter?  Although matches under 20cM don't always show, sometimes people with low shared cMs do have matches that show up if they share 30cM or more with the low match.

Yes, I've checked all the daughter's shared matches (there are 5) and all are also in my shared matches with Henry. I've also checked the shared matches of the shared matches etc.  I've got them all in a colour coded group and regularly check for any changes.

Is it this one:

Hi Gadget

I've had 2 previous topics/threads relating to Henry Vila.

The previous one I referred to in this topic (see 1st post in this thread) was from Ireland Tipperary board asking about Henry's birth mother Nora Barrett.   
https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=831192.0

The one you highlight is an earlier topic post (on USA board) when I enquired about the possibility & usefulness of getting Henry's New York birth certificate.

Hope that makes sense.
