Well boy and girls, I recently received an update about this database, so figured I'd give it one more shot. Now I didn't find any of my ancestors, BUT I did find one CLYDESDALE entry for the exact location my great grandmother CLYDESDALE came from. When I say exact, I mean the exact little townland so it's a big deal!! It's an unusual enough surname that I'm feeling pretty confident (genealogically speaking that is] that she may belong to one of the many 'collaterals' in my family AND I'm going to begin to follow this lady. She just may turn out to be a relation [dare I wish for a 'sibling'?] to my great gran!! If so, perhaps she's left some valuable information behind that will help me. If not, well it's someone new to search for.
So moral of story is ... "when you've exhausted all possibilities, remember this ... you haven't"!! Try, try, and try again. Oh and those words of wisdom are not mine ... they belonged to a certain Mr. Thomas Edison. Any light bulbs turning on for you? Hahaha
