An absolute beginner


I'm from Wolverhampton and I've recently started to trace my family tree, as it's a subject that has always fascinated me.

I am researching Barratt, Bayliss/Bayless, Powell, Smout (Staffordshire), Mullock (Alsager, Cheshire) and Rooke (London area).
I have had some success with my nan's uncle, Thomas Barratt, as he won a posthumous VC in WW1, but apart from that, I'm going to need all the help I can get! :eek:

Also, if I can be of assistance to anyone else, that would be great too O0
