Hi Jill

I was over the moon - the lack of parents in the baptism record was a real brickwall. I am not sure that Dad truly appreciated what a break through the DNA matches were.

Just this week Ancestry posted DNA matches and Common Ancestors flags for them pointing to the TILL family, so I am chasing up Ann's family.

I also have one DNA match linking back to Thomas Harwood and Frances Bartlett, through their daughter Frances.

Sadly Dad passed away at 91, a few weeks ago - the last surviving grandchild of his grandparents. This week his nephew, my cousin, became a grandfather himself. Such is the circle of life.
