a West Midlands nightmare
In the hope that the research success achieved with the Rudkins can at least be equalled with the Whitehouse family, efforts continue in the search for them in this project. The particular line of interest here has it's known beginnings in the West Midlands area of the United Kingdom where the name is extremely common, particularly amongst the generations where we are currently blocked. There are literally dozens of Whitehouses with the forename William, John or Joseph, names we are particularly interested in, all in the same towns and with the same occupations, during the same years and all with very obscure links - a positive minefield to navigate. Those who say 'seek and ye shall find' cannot know much about the problems encountered in genealogical research.
It has to be said that breaks from the frustrations of Whitehouse research are very welcome, hence the 'refreshment' of other projects. I shall persist though but unashamedly admit that I badly need a breakthrough with this!
