I joined the Huntingdonshire Family History Society in Dec 2004 hoping to make use of the society records and member services to further explore the origins of the Dodsons of Yaxley. Little did I think that within 6 months I would get an e-mail from Margaret Long in Yaxley alerting me to the research she had carried out on behalf of James Dodson in Bath. Having made contact with James I was astounded to find that his grandfather Samuel Dodson was a brother of Florence Dodson my great grandmother. In other words we are both directly descended from their father George Dodson and mother Margaret Smith who lived in Yaxley. We are presently exchanging e-mails and I hope to meet James Dodson when we are in England in Sept.
