Hi,

I am new to this site and the whole family history research thing, so I was wondering if anybody would be able to help me.

I am researching my family from my Mother's side, the family name is/was Seabright, they were from the East London area, UK.

My Grandfather passed away 5 years ago, and my Grandmother more recently at the end of last year. I didnt ever get the chance to speak to either of them about our family history in detail when they were still with us and it is something I am very much interested in.

So my question is, where or what would be the best way for me to research?

Many thanks in advance.

Always start with looking for something you can confirm is correct. You may have to purchase a certificate to do this. These are best purchased from the GRO direct and not through an 'agent'
http://www.gro.gov.uk/GRO/content/certificates/default.asp

In your case you know male line was Boyse and the female line was Seabright.
If you look on bmd records there is a marriage in Tower Hamlets in 1988, the names you will know.
Looking at the female line for a birth about 20 years earlier of a person with the same name gives a result in 1960 with a mother named Beard. I then looked to see if there were any more births to this couple. There were a possible three more births, William B, Peter J and Sharon P. The earliest was in 1945 so I then looked for a marriage between a male Seabright and female Beard just before this birth. There is one for a William S Seabright to Caroline P Beard j/s qtr 1943 in Shoreditch Checking their births, William was born 1921 and Caroline in 1924 both in Shoreditch. There is one questionable birth, the one in 1945 as this was in Farnworth, Lancshire whilst the three others and the marriage were in Shoreditch.
This aside, your grandfather was probably William S Seabright and grandmother Caroilne P Beard
