  4. What happens next??

    I don't know if this questions been asked before! When you research your direct family lines, what happens when you get as far as you can? Do you spread the branches of your trees or do you start other projects/hobbies? I'm nowhere near this but just thought I'd ask. Thanks Treechaser!

  13. Death information on BMD

    From an old family bible, I know that my great grandparents had a son, Percy Vaughan, who I suspect died as an infant (he does not seem to appear on either the 1901 or 1911 censuses). The bible simply states his name, born at Pontypridd and died at Pontypridd (no dates, etc.). There are two...
