    Default Don't you just love middle names!

    Been trying to 'get back' just one more generation and been stuck on a John and Ann Gidney (couldn't get more common names really) ... just today I came across a record of a marriage on FSearch of John Gidney and Ann Leverick ... thankfully several years down the line they called one of their sons Charles Leverick Gidney

    Excellent result!

    Years back, I stumbled across a website that listed possible surnames as middle names and found my several times great grandmother listed: Mary Ann Dean CROSS. It turned out that her Mum, "a single woman" , had included Mary Ann's father's surname when she was baptised. He was William DEAN.

    Sady, I lost all trace of the website when my previous laptop turned its toes up.

    Hugh Wallis had a useful site for tracking down middle names in the IGI

    http://
    freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hughwallis/

    (scroll down to "IGI Middle Name indexes")

    I don't know how well it works these days.

    Still finds the names but the link to the IGI site isn't working due to the 'improvements'! Still - gives you a bit more info to go at

    A very useful site! If only I could find my people!
    Sadly, our friend Vanessa, passed away 29th. February 2012.

    Life is brief. Time is a thief.
