clovelly77 on Family Tree Circles
Journals and Posts
I have been interested in Family History, well forever, I am sure I was born with a natural interest in all sides of family history. I had never anything to work with as I am from a disfunctional family with not alot of communication on family issues or history. My own birth place has been a hugh challenge, still to this day I have no solid proof. Broken family's with Step Parents ect. So you can imagin. I started with myself & my parents, asking for names constantly through my life, & working with what ever little piece I got.
In 2007 my father gave me a copy of the Paf file that his sister Diana had mostly researched with him [John].
This paf file has been my saviour. It has given me a new leace on life, liturlay. Having so many names now to work with & finding my GGGGG Grand Parents & more. It was like the door I was knocking on finally opened. Since 2007 I have been using the internet to find certificates for proof of information & comming across alsorts of bits 'n' pieces. I have made a copy of Dad & Diana's paf file & filling in gaps on my own paf file, so if any mistakes are made, I can start again from the origional paf file.
There is still a long way to go, to fill in the gaps & get a better conection with my new found living relies, & retracing the steps of our ancesters. I have always thought our family to be the only ones in the phone book, as it were true for many years, but on my research I have found to expand the spelling of the surnames, & keep a wider outlook than the imediate family.
I am a direct descendant from the names, Feaks, Playfair, Pitt, Matcham, Laycock, Hunter, for a start.
I am interested in communicating with anyone with interest any time, & find this sight "Family Tree Circles" a refreshing & informative sight with easy to read [for sight impared] clear imfo.
Thanks. much better

9. John Hunter FEAKS b. Abt. 1877 - MY GRANDFATHER married;
Evelina CASTLING or Evelyn CANTIGLE. Please, Again any help please, on
MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER'S correct name.
I don't know when or why, but William married a second time to;
Mary JARDINE b. UNKNOWN the daughter of UNKNOWN.
I think I need some serious help here, I am so confused on the children, I'm not getting anywhere fast. I think some of the children from the above list, Children from William & Robina are not correct. Is it that the first three names [Sarah, Margaret & William] are the only children of William & Mary JARDINE ?, & the rest are children of Willian & Robina HUNTER ?.
As all the children are from William FEAKS, they would all have the surname of FEAKS.
Any connections out there. Please. Robina HUNTER, now, there is another brick wall. I've got plenty of them. Smile.
Who are the parents of Robina HUNTER b. Abt 1847
