Just Starting Out

Croydon, Surrey
Hi Everyone

My name is Vivien and this is my first venture into finding my ancestors. My sister has done quite a bit of research and I'll have to catch up with her to fill in the gaps.

I was born in Cambridge, the city of colleges, UK. My father's name being Moore and my mother's maiden name Elliott. My father's family are mainly based in the Cambridge area. My maternal grandmother's maiden name was Frearer. My mother's side of the family mostly came from the Yorkshire area. My maternal grandfather was born in Guildford.

My father comes from a family of fourteen children, one or possibly two of the eldest sons emigrated to Australia roughly 70 years ago. My father is the youngest and he is now 81 years old.

Will follow the site with interest.
