I am tracing my family tree and John Burgess Gillett (born Mile End 1888) is also my Great Grandad. He had a son Kenneth in 1921 with his wife Sarah (nee Turner) who is my Grandad. I am trying to follow the line back, so far getting toThomas and Matilda Gillett who are John Burgess's Great Grandparents.

Good luck with your searching!
