  1. Lennon's are annoying.

    Edward- 1912 (We were close Angelina, extremely close!!)
    Sarah- 1914 (Possibly because the 1911 didn't match, unless it's Edward's twin or the 1913 one)
    Cecilia- 1922/1985
    Jane (Ginny) -1929/1994

  4. A Wealth of Information.

    I’m only 21 and yet since the age of 14 I’ve been saying tomy Mum- I’m going to find out about our family! I’m going to trace them so thatI know where I come from, what makes me, well me.

    Now, now I’ve found a weather ofinformation thanks to one little detail- a random little search to get some details
