There are no marriages in this list, but three of the deaths are for ancestors, as opposed to collateral relatives. I really should have a photograph of great-granduncle Willie Brainin somewhere, but I appear to have misplaced it. I hope it isn't lost forever.

Genealogy is like a jigsaw puzzle, but you don't have the box top, so you don't know what the picture is supposed to look like. As you start putting the puzzle together, you realize some pieces are missing, and eventually you figure out that some of the pieces you started with don't actually belong to this puzzle. I'll help you discover the right pieces for your puzzle and assemble them into a picture of your family.
