hi i'm looking for information about my mothers family history. I have hit a snag along the way. Surnames of Todd and Duvos. My mother told me she was told one of these sides immigrated over illegally (like they weren't supposed to be on the boat) and possibly used a false name or changed thier names. How do I go about researching something like this?
We have myheritage on our home PC as well as on our little lap top (10"). We do most of the work at home, but take the laptop when travelling/researching.
Can someone please tell us the easiest way to update our files between the two computers. We dont want to have to type in the new info on both, neither do we want to delete a tree and reload a new one. Do we need to save / back up / export gedcom?

It listed a daughter in the obit. living in Upper Michigan no name who? Who are his other ralatives ? I know he was remarried from the obit. I know he is buried in Clare Michigan . Please help !!! His Granddaughter Sherri
I am adopted child who is fortunate enough to know at least the first few generations of both my biological parents as well as my adoptive parents, however I cannot find the means of adding in an adoption so that I can trace the family and my only other option appears to be to create a whole separate family tree. I would like to avoid this option.
Before my grandfather passed away in April 2001, he asked my mother to promise to never try & trace the family tree. Naturally, this has me fascinated, and leaves me wondering why exactly! I have copies of both his birth certificate and my mothers - nothing untoward; so maybe there is another (illegitimate) branch of family somewhere that we don't know about? He was in the navy, both Royal and Merchant, for many years so could easily have fathered other children abroad.
Assuming that this even is the big secret, how would I go about finding out?
