Hello, am researching the female side of my family, no not sexist, have no information on male side, whatsoever. I was looking for maps of Stretford, Manchester, from the 1700's onwards, and finished up here. If anyone knows a site where I might find any, I would appreciate it. At the moment I am looking at the Owen family, who resided there for many years. They were all gardeners/ag labourers and market gardeners.

Hope to get to know the forum better.

Thanks Steve. Problem is the person I thought was my dad wasn't. As all my relatives are now deceased I have no-one to help in that rrespect.

Thanks for the message though.

Hello and welcome. Do you have your birth cert? or could you get a copy. It will help with your father and his occupation

Thank you for the warm welcome, will check the map sites, as to my father, the name on my birth cert was the man my mum was married to, but he was not my father, they divorced before I was born and I never met him. This only came to light recently and the lady who gave the info died not long afterward, she didn't know any more than that. I guess these things happened during the war. Still, am happy looking at the female side.
