Brick Wall Solutions - Still Looking for James Henry Trevaskis (1839-?)

In previous Brick Wall Solutions blogs, I have written about my success stories. This time I am writing about a brick wall that has yet to crumble. I certainly hope that someone reading this blog has the answer or clues that I can follow up on. Other family members, as well as myself, have tried many times over the last thirty plus years to solve it but without success.

My gg grandfather was James Henry Trevaskis born in St Hilary Cornwall in 1839.

Regular readers of this blog will have noted that yesterday (21 Dec 2009) there was a Brick Wall blog by Rosemary Kopittke, another Unlock The Past (UTP) team member. A decision was made to include Brick Wall stories from other speakers so you will be seeing a wider range of solutions in 2010. Don’t forget to let us know any comments or your own stories and solutions.
