Just go to Search (top right

Click on Search Trees

then send a pm (private message) to the tree owner

You are very unlikely to get a related member just happening on your post ............... so you will have to do the Search Trees route.

Meanwhile, the members who help on here, like myself, can try to find information for you.

You are not new to GR, so you know how it works.

Make the effort to look in 'search all trees'..................there is one other member with Charles (1821) in a GR tree......send her a message, and hope that she responds

If you want help on here....say what you are looking for............asking for 'any' info is not helpful, as people will end up looking for that which you already know.

the OP does date from 2006 ............... and may thus have been originally posted on the now-non-existent Surname Board, where people did post asking for information and contact in this way.
