However,surely someone in the family must know where in Lancashire your
came from? She must have talked about her home town and her English roots
at some time.
Actually Roy, this is the problem with Grandma Edith. By the time I was old
enough to ask questions she had already passed away. My father,her son,
having no interest whatever in genealogy, simply never asked about her past.
I have no idea which city or town she came from. Rigth now I'm trying to
find out where and when she and Grandpa were married. ( Dad doesn't know this
Anyway, two years ago while in Phoenix, I spent the better part of three
days at the LDS center there. Most of the time I spent working on the
MacGregor side of the family and things have really come together on that.
I have been into the familysearch.org website and I just can't find anything
about the Cockayne's. For a long time I just couldn't understand why my
father had never been interested in his own family history, but I've resigned
myself to the fact that everyone does not share my passion for a paper trail.
I do thank you for shedding some light on British research, and if you have
anymore suggestion's I'm listening.
