Like many researchers, I have found that the early 1700s is about the earliest ancestral date that I can get to. I would like to fill in the numerous gaps in my ancestral lines by matching my ancestors with those of other members. Family Description:
I have found that, contrary to family claims, my paternal and maternal lines do have quite a lot of common ground, i.e. Lincolnshire/Nottinghamshire and, again like many others, my ancestors were mostly agricultural or mining workers. There is a distinct lack of photographs although a recent contact enabled me to obtain one of my grandfather via a relative by marriage in the USA - what a stroke of luck!
