I did not mean to start a flame war on the list. I thought I was mearly asking
for information that I was unaware of, being from the USA.
<My question is, does England include Wales and Cornwall or just
I want to thank Sandy, Rick, John, Ken, Linda, Colleen, Emily and all of
you who were kind enough to respond and help me find the answer.
I love this list and enjoy reading it wether I end up being English or
Cornish, I still have hope of being Cornish through my TRIMBATH roots, which I
have no proof of yet.
For all who so kindly responded about the matters of the person who gives
the information: I understand that personnaly as of yesterday when my
mother's sister died and my daughter ( who works for the local newspaper and
writes the obits) received the information from the undertaker. The
information was given by a cousin- by- marriage and was incorrect. The cousin
only placed the names of family members by Nicknames ( Betty) instead of
Elizabeth, etc. and had my grandfather's middle initial wrong, and told the
undertaker that there was 2 brothers instead of 1 ( definately wrong ) I had
my daughter call the undertaker back and give him the correct info on the
middle initial and my mother's true name, but the rest of it remains in
nicknames only. That is how my aunt's children want it. I find this to be so
sad for anyone trying to get information years from now. Out of respect to
my aunt, I did not argue the point with her children, I just let it go as is
but inside, I have a torrment for the info that was given. This is just an
example of how things get confused.
I think they should have asked my mother about the information and not a
distant cousin, certainly a sister would have the correct information.
Sorry to bend your ear on this, I just wanted to express how things get
Once again, thank you all for your help It was much appreciated..........
PS: I am staying on the list anyway as I enjoy the parties, the conversation,
the stories and mostly the hopes that I will find CORNISH Roots.
