SHANKLAND research stories

Many of us must have interesting tales to tell about when, why, and how we started to take an interest in our family history, or stories we were told about the family by parents or grandparents, or the fascinating narratives that came to light while we were looking through the records. Or maybe there are enduring mysteries about our forefathers, where the true facts are still not established?

This section covers stories that people have shared with us about their own Shankland research. Some are family histories, some are accounts of research undertaken and results found, some are tales of perpetual mysteries which resist attempts at solution. We are always interested in seeing more!
