    3. Hi Trish - My post was in response to the woman who was trying to prove her husband's family tradition of relationship to Queen Elizabeth (which one?). I have no thoughts that my Parrs might be royal descendants or even collateral branches. I've not connected to Ireland, so haven't traced mine back before their living in Ohio. I hope the original poster reads your message. - Sally On Sun, Dec 17, 2017 at 6:30 AM, Trish Parr <trish.parr@eparrs.com> wrote: > Hi Sally, > > You will need to start your researching with your husband; his parents; his > grandparents documentation and so on.
