We don't know whether the thing about German grandparents is true or was even posted by the same person who started this thread. As far as I know, someone just found it by Googling.

Kate, true, but enough coincidences to need the poster to confirm her details.

This probably isn't her either?

To be honest has the poster actually done any real research of their own or just made assumptions based on dna/family stories.

If they really want a genuine family tree the research has be done stage by stage ie birth, marriage, death certificates, themselves, parents, grandparents etc etc.

Given that some countries records are very poor in relation to others and finding the relevant ones might be nigh on impossible.

Even US records are very patchy depending on the state and how far back they go.

Even in the UK - I have found pre civil registration parish records with partial or full blank pages due to being water damage.

Outwith the UK - I've looked for records in Poland and Malta without luck and even looked for fil in the 1931 US/Canadian census but didn't find him.

I think the poster would be fortunate to get back 200 years especially with Indian heritage (did they keep written records?) as even those with Irish roots prove to be a really big brick wall for many.
