Thanks to GR I have been able to discover my great grandparents' names, Edmund Chandler and Emma Spindler, and that my grandmother, Daisy Minnie Chandler Ward had 2 brothers and 4 sisters. Daisy was the youngest of the 7 children. I now have a copy of her birth and marriage certificates and have been in touch with some wonderful folks that have helped add some exciting facts. I am so glad that I found and joined this site. Maybe someday I will be able to visit all the places relating to my family history in England.
