Jackie Depelle - Family History Tutor and Speaker

Little do we know what awaits when starting out on the family history trail. Very often our ancestors led ordinary lives however they all have their place in history and certainly made us who we are. Occasionally though we find something really unexpected about our families or our research touches on the lives of those who moved in very different social circles. This is exactly what happens in this case study where an accidental discovery becomes a vortex of amazing coincidences and almost a parallel family history universe.
