I have been trying to find the birth details,parents and siblings of my 2x Great Grandfather,George Mills,(1820-1858), without success.

In desperation I put a query on the "Find Ancestors" message board.Within half an hour I had the information which contained the key to finding all his details.

So, a HUGE thank-you to Christine,Marie Celeste and Reggie for your help.Thanks to you ,my George Mills brick wall has been smashed to smithereens! I'm now very happy, and very,very grateful.
