Go to ancestry.com, click on "Collobrate", under "Find a Board" type in Campion. Read all the posts there (there are quite a few) and learn something about the Campions. They are a real interesting group. I started just gathering every family and have over 2,000 in the family tree - none connected to us yet, but it is an interesting group of people including Edmund Campion who was martyed in the 1600s and became a Saint and William Campion who was a Knight in England. There are Campions in Ireland (one of them is Sean Campion who still lives in the Campion home they have had for more than 150 years. They apparently migrated from England because the Church of England were persecuting them. Very interesting stuff.
