My name is Margaret Thorgrimson [nee Pugh]. Searching through all the records for 1891-1901 Cornish Census is a tough thing to do. My grandparents were so special to me but never thought to ask them about their history. I now live in Canada with my husband John and his tree goes back to 080 A.D. while mine is only to my gran parents.It is not good to have such a short family tree. Other members of the family don't have any info either, the family Bible is lost somewhere in the children and has not appeared as of yet. My grandad was called William Henry James Mitchell b. 1875-77 in St Germans, my gran mum was named either Ellen/Elena/Helen Wilton b. 1876-77 Stroke Dameral Plymouth. If anyone can help me find their parents it would add to our search. I don't know if my records were destroyed in the bombing of Plymouth during the war but there is also no record of "me" Margaret Ellen Pugh.
I am now 75 years old and would love to pass the family history down to my children. Thank you
