Intermediate Family History Researcher
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
I began my research to find more information about my immediate family, but this became a One-Name Study several years ago. I am a member of the Guild of One Name Studies and as such research the GURD family worldwide. Almost all living GURDs can now be traced back to one man who lived in south Wiltshire in the early 16th century and died in 1563. His wife must have predeceased him, as there is no mention of her in his Will.
I am happy to help GURD researchers who would like to know more about the family and share information.
Do you have a genealogy website or blog?

Hello everyone,
The Family History website 'FOOTNOTE' has FREE access in December for 'referred' searchers. Most of the data is from the USA, but even if you don't know any ancestors who emigrated, it's worth having a free look around and running a search. I knew there would be a handful of Gurds and managed to pick them all up, as far back as the US 1860 Census,You can only gain access to the site via a recommendation by me, as I subscribe to it. Let me know if you'd like me to send you the link. Dot

Hi Dot, I have sent an email to Brian at the last email address I have and have requested delivery confirmation so will know if the address has changed. Will let you know if/when I hear back from him.

In reply to the will of Thomas 1563's I dont seem to have it so if you could please forward it to me I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Thanks Dot for the information will check it out tonight. Been working on the Smith's tree lately and that has been quite difficult.

Hi Dot
I havent heard from Brian since the beginning of the year although I have emailed him several times he has not replied. I will try again this weekend.

I kept an eye on the group but did not see any new members. Anne

I suppose there's a chance that Bessie might have been missed. I have a couple of relatives who are doing a good job of being invisible too. I must check if our library has free 1911 census as it's expensive to make all but the essential records. Dot

Hi Dot
Thanks for inviting me to join the group. I am interested in anything that can help increase my knowledge of our ancestors.

If anyone has any information on the descendents of George Frederick Gurd born 1867 at Lytchett Matravers, nr Poole, Dorset I would love to hear from you. He was the son of George Gurd born 1839 and Amelia Caines. George was my great grandfather and was one of 5 children. Anne

I have looked extensively at the 1911 census and cannot find any trace of Bessie Kate Gurd (1890). Our local record office is one of those where you can access the 1911 census for free so I intend having a further look next time I am there. Melanie

Hi Dot - is the tree on this site? If it is I can't it ... I am a beginner, after all! My closest relative is Mary Alice Gurd, daughter of William Gurd and Lizzie Fall. Does that help?

Hi Joy
That's good news. I didn't expect anyone to find a new cousin on the first day!! Now you both can compare notes. Dot
