    There is so much variability in amount of shared cMs once you get beyond 2C. My father has several known cousins on his maternal grandmother's lineage. He is a better match to several 2C1Rs than a...

    Thanks, Jill.
    So, we've confirmed where Alfred lived. Would there be some sort of library or HistSoc there that might be a repository of local history?
