Hi All

The names Steve Ellwood, based in Whitley Bay on the North East coast of England.

I'm new to family history, post retirement it was something on my bucket list 'to do'. I did have a stab at it back in 2001 but working then I just didn't have the time to dedicate to the task. Been retired for a number of years but have now caught the 'Family History Bug'.

Its certainly a case of not asking questions when people are alive, I'm slowly but surely picking up the threads of my families past including quite a few 'skeletons in the cupboard'.

I'm researching the following lines, mostly located in the North of England, Cumbria, Northumbria and Durham - Ellwood, McDermott, Batey, Wear, Weir, Ware, Stephenson, Gibson, Potts, Treloggen and Smirk.

Anyone think they have a link, please get in touch.
