I can't see any Murphy/Twigg twins births registered in England or Wales.

Hi PricklyHolly,

I thought so, i know my friend was'nt sure, she knows nothing really about her mum's side of the family.
I thought i'd make her up a small tree, for christmas as she's a bit low at present. Her partner has just gone on 6 month tour to Afgan- so you can imagine what she's going through.
Thanks again.

Hopefully the marriage cert will point you in the right direction.
