Hi Linda Thanks for the info its much appreciated, however, i know i only gave you very vague information, but the results you have sent me the surname you have spelt Durant (ie only one R) the Elijah i was looking for surname was spelt Durrant (two R's) does this make any difference. Please advise, thanks again Ian Hale

Hi Linda. This is a real long shot! My great grandmother is said to have been part of a circus troupe. I have lost her and her husband in this country after 1891, but it is almost certain that they travelled to America to perform in Ringling Brothers circus there. I'm sorry I have no dates, but the names are Daisy and James Carroll and possibly their young daughter Ivy K Carroll. Any help much appreciated. Thanks Gill.

Hi Linda, I have been looking for a Jane Cameron (nee Mathi(e)son), b1860 in Scotland, her husband Daniel (no other info) and son Daniel M. Cameron c1880 Islington, Middlesex. Last certain info I have on Jane is 1881 living with her mother Agnes Mathison and baby son. I can't find them after that and am now wondering if they emigrated. Whether you get around to searching this for me or not I would like to say you are a little diamond :-) Cheryl
