Sometimes family links are so shattered - in this case by everything from adoptions to suicides, that following up legends and trying to make links from the other end are the only way begin to build the picture. If we can find the name of the gunsmith we can find the true family name. In this case we have a member of an older generation who is dying and would like to know where he came from before his death. So the normal orderly plodding doesn't cut it.
