WILSHERE, HITCHIN, Circa 1800
My question really was about my reasoning concerning her father Thomas WILSHERE. I know a lot of the info. is circumstantial but there appear to be too many coincidences for there not to be some connection. I suppose what I'm asking is, when there is no concrete evidence are reasoned assumptions acceptable? Or, if you have any suggestions on how I might obtain the concrete evidence, I'd be most grateful.
You have already followed much of the advice on How can you be certain about ... and I am, to some extent ducking your direct question. Instead I have posted a new advice page I've hit a brick wall ... which explains what I have done when I have hit difficulties in my own research. Obviously different people react differently - but my own approach has been, in effect, to say that there is some much exciting research one can do involving ones ancestors that there are better things to do than bang one's head! In fact if you stand back from the problem for a time you are more likely to find the answer if you make a fresh approach at a later date.
If you can add to the information given above tell me.
