Call me naive, but when I began my family research, I thought that my surname, BALDOCK, was fairly uncommon and that tracing people would be quite easy as a result… how wrong I was!
To top things off, I received my maternal grandmother’s birth certificate on Monday, which revealed her parents as George CASTLE and Sarah Elizabeth GOLDSACK. Suddenly, alarm bells started ringing …
You see, GOLDSACK is a very well researched name, is undergoing a One Name Study, and appears to have more variations than you can shake your fist at!
Time to make contact with Keith Goldsack, the researcher, I think!
