Not quite sure how this site works but I am trying to find out as much as I can about my mother and father's families as they are both deceased and I have quite a lot of information about our present family which is huge! :)
I don't seem to be having much luck with free sites and can't even find my fathers family name of Charlesworth. Apparantely my father's grand-father changed his surname but no-one knows why and I only found out, with asking about the past, from my mum. This was a surprise to everyone I spoke to so is it true?
I am going to my local library archives tomorrow to hopefully shed some light.
