message boards, Family Tree Maker homepages, and the most popular articles
will be preserved in a read-only format, while several other features will
no longer be available, including member subscriptions and the Shop.
I am from a line of Dittons that are in Australia. I am wondering if it may follow from the ones you are talking about. I was adopted right at birth and only recently found my birth mother. She mentioned something about us being descendents somehow to the author of Jane Eyre. Apparently she married a Ditton in England.
