Hi. I am an Australian tracing my family (Burnett, Wright, Green,Kirby) back to Yorkshire and the Village of Thorner in the 18th century and earlier. If anyone has a shared history of these names and has photos of the area I would be most grateful to hear from them.
G'day, I'm new to this forum. I would like to ask for opinions about a situation with one of my ancestors. Without giving a name to start with, I have an ancestor who had a child at the age of 48/49. She had not had any children for 9 years before this birth. There was a daughter at home, aged 15 at the time of this birth.
Having done our DNA tests, search/filter options make this an interesting puzzle.
I am trying to to trace my family on my mothers side and am stuck on samuel field born in Halesworth 1773 his second wife was Jane (fulcher) .
I am also looking at the burwell family and am stuck on Thomas Burwell born 1799 kingscliffe northamton .
also thomas williamson born 1811 birmingham a gunmaker his father was thomas.
I would be very happy to hear from anyone with connections to these famlies.
Hi, I'm new to the site , I have acquired an indenture (not to do with my Family Tree,just interest) and I would like a good place of reference in understanding the legal terminology , i.e. who owns what etc. This has particular significance as there are 4 sheets of slaves listed. Thanks in advance .
Hello, I'm new on the site. So having a look around to see how it all works. Any tips or help would be very welcome. ;-)
