January 24, 2007

Hi Thomas,

I think I contacted you a few yrs ago to ask about the Grimshaw name in general and to try to find out if I could link my line in with any you knew of. Since then I have found a little more information out about my roots and I
enclose some documents as to my direct Grimshaw line. Can you tell me if you would be able to include this on your site and hopefully someone may be able to link in with it or even to take it further back.

Please let me know if this will be possible, you have a great website for the Grimshaw families.

Kind Regards,

Dorinda Boag (nee Grimshaw)

 

Dorinda has kindly provide her e-mail address (shown below) with a request that anyone having information on this line of Grimshaws contact her.
