Search billions of records on Ancestry.com



This is my version of a Query Page!!! Here you can find brief (?) stories about my "problem ancestors" - who they are, some of the resources I've checked and some research strategies (which OBVIOUSLY haven't always worked)  Only a few "Minute Mysteries" have been uploaded; each should take about a minute to read, and more are on the way!  If YOU are a Genealogical "Inspector Morse", or another "Miss Marple", and can shed some light on these "mysteries", DO let me know!!!
