I am doing some research for a friend who has discovered that his greatgrandmother maiden name was Mona Brandon and that her fathers name was Benedict Alfred Brandon.
All help will be greatly appreciated.

Please take a tip

If you ask for help again.....include dates and location.

You were extremely fortunate this this time, as the names weren't exactly common...............

Also....try doing research yourself.......use freebmd
