Many thanks for that Susan.. Hopefully I will at some stage find that there is a link between my heritage ( Pickin )and the Pickens who crossed the pond and settled in the US. I have heard that a change of name was due to the various family members fighting on opposing sides during the civil war.

Regards

Mike Pickin
