Back another generation, at last

Feeling in despair of ever moving your family history further back? Janet Few, who will be giving a remote presentation at the BIFHSGO conference in September, has an inspiring story about a breakthrough along her paternal line. It's one where she's been blocked since 1977.

Janet is cautious. She writes "I just can’t bring myself to ‘ink them in’. I am not sure what I am waiting for in terms of additional proof but I seem to feel I need something more. Is it just that I cannot believe that I have made progress on this line after so long?"

This looks like a case where a probability approach would help.
