Ms J Dabnor 9/8/01

My name is Jaclyn Dabnor, and I'm writing you in hopes that you could help me with some research that I'm trying to do.

For years, I've been interested in researching my family name and where it comes from, only to hit brick walls whenever I turn a corner. Living in the United States is not helping my situation either.

I did happen across a search engine that turned up a 'Ms J Dabnor' who is Headmistress for Hawkinge Primary School in Kent-and that's about the extent. Most of the information I'm finding on the net is courtesy of my father-whom I don't need to do any research on at all!

I was wondering where I could go to find information on my family history from the other side of the duck pond. I would even like to get an email address where I could reach Ms Dabnor at the Hawkinge Primary School. Every little tidbit of history helps!

Thanks so much for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon.

James Kilty 15/3/01

I am beginning to trace my ancestors and would be pleased to know of any Kilty/Kelty connections in your area.

My great grandfather, James Kilty, came from Sligo in Ireland and settled in Gravesend at the end of the 19th century. I believe that at least one of his children moved to east Kent but have no idea where. To my knowledge there are no Kiltys left in the Gravesend area but there may be some towards the east. I would welcome any help, however small.

Thank you.
