    I'm a bit lost on where to start my search for my great grandfather on my maternal side. My gran always maintained her maiden name was Smith but when she died, it turned out her maiden name was Church. The story is that the family left the Northamptonshire area in haste and under a cloud, but no-one knows why. Any suggestions where the best place to start is?

    Hi Joyelle,

    What dates are we talking about, please? Also, post the names and any information that you have and we can then try to search for you. :)

    With a few dates, perhhaps we can check out both names & see where they may have mingled, or made up a story.
