In Reply to: Thomas Vance family by Jeremy Vance of 550

Hi Jeremy,
Have we corresponded about your Vances? I don't think so.

I'm collating the English, Scottish, Irish, American and other overseas Vances in the hope of finally sorting out the connection between them and my family of Vans of Barnbarroch.
My aim is to collect every (!) recorded Vance family and try to piece together the entire picture, using all the available sources and taking into account the genetic data.

I'd really appreciate any information you have about the Vances (a gedcom is ideal as it saves endless re-typing with the risk that I will make errors too) and particularly any ideas, legends, or better still, knowledge, about their origins.

Having all the available information may help in eventually finding some of the earlier generations in Ireland, Scotland or elsewhere.

In this particular case, I'm not sure whether I've identified the right Thomas Vance, here. Was Thomas junior perhaps born 1847 and died abt 1930? I'd be interested to exchange info anyway.

I hope very much to hear from you.

Best wishes,
