We were five again today despite including a new member: Sue Hickson. Welcome
Sue is well advanced and has pushed her trees back to the mid/early 1700s. She is
now looking to fine tune her maternal grandfather’s line using Parish Registers. After
some talk, it seems she may have to visit the local records offices, as the records
she needs are not online. One of her problems is that the names she is
concentrating on are very common in the location she is searching.
Eileen is still trying to pin down the origin of a middle name -Kentfield-, which may
enable her to join up two currently unconnected branches of her family.
Leslie has made little progress in her searches but is still pressing on.
We had a general chat about Parish Registers, and discussed a problem Ana has
with printing from Ancestry. We can see no way round this latter, as Ancestry will only
offer one basic set up. If you need more, you either have to go to one of Ancestrys
fee charging affiliates or try something more radical.
JD undertook to research further and report back.
We next meet on Wednesday 14th August
