Hi Jiminey

I am trying to help you here not criticising.

'James 1829,my grandfather' are you sure he is your grandfather. I do not know your age but I am knocking on 70 my father was born 1911 his father was 50 when he had my dad (b1860). Assuming you are 61 your father would have been 61 when you was born and his father would have been 61 when your father was born. Posible but!

can you supply your mother and fathers names dob, marriage and place etc and I will try to work back from there.

Yes ,that is my grand father,my father was born in 1879,he was 67 when I was born.I am the youngest of his 20 children,I am 66 years oldand born in 1947.

Sorry to hear about your cancer, its a bum isn't. Glad to hear you are doing ok. I had mine in 2004 and it came back last year, but not ready to give in just yet.
