Who Are We, Really?
I have recently become very curious to find out about my family. My grandmother and grandfather on my mother’s side had 11 children which produced over 40 great & great-great grandchildren, yet we can’t seem to go too far past that. With the little information I have been provided my two elder aunts, I have been able to find possbile great grandparents but there’s no certainty that these are really our relatives. Names are changes and I’m unable to link brothers and sisters to the same parent. I’m not sure if there was a rule or law with the census that children with different last names could not be listed in that household? I keep getting some stange results in my search and it’s making me more and more determined to find out the real history. I could really use some help.
