Frustrated American Looking for English Roots

An American Cousin here looking for her English releatives. Good thing the ancestors are long gone, cause I'd like to wring their necks. So, please, any Bishop, Cheer and Cole cousins, take a look at my profile to get an idea of who I'm looking for. :)

Hi SweetAmber

You are so, so lucky in some respects. There are 'only' around 200 or so Cheer's (and by the way - let's hear it for them!) in each of the English censuses from 1841 to 1901, so finding your family shouldn't be too difficult.

Do you know anything more about Anna's parents you could share with us?

Cheers (sorry - I often end my postings like this!) :biggrin:

All the census in the US and other info. say that the parents are from England. I have old postcards that only mention a few names. Some have been solved, except for a Sarah, Janet and Nellie Cheer. Sarah and Nellie refer themselves as Aunt. Janet as just Janet. There is one from Grandma Cheer. And that is it. The parents of Anna Cheer arrived anywhere bef 1876 and possibly came into New York as that is where she and her brother(s) are born.
