Ellwood family of Cumbria

We recently discovered a link between our family and that of a well-researched online family tree on the Ellwood family of Cumbria, England. This has expanded the scope of our Cumbria genealogy research enormously, and we have found many people with Ellwood family members shown in online trees, often with strange anomalies and glaring errors.

We have started an…

Calling Bagot researchers

In the past few weeks I've had quite a lot of correspondence with people researching the Bagot family, and we've had a fruitful exchange of information.

As a result of this, and to facilitate further exchanges, we've set up a Bagot family forum on YahooGroups, and invite other Bagot researchers to join us…

Isle of Axholme genealogy

If you have Ancestors from the Isle of Axholme (north-west Lincolnshire in England), a very good site is Axholme Ancestry. There's more about it here.

The site actually covers a bit more than the Isle of Axholme itself, and includes south-east Yorkshire and north Lincolnshire as well -- Humberside, in fact. So if you have any ancestors or other relatives… Continue

Event database program

One of the things I feel the need for as a research tool is an event database program, and I wonder if anyone else feels the need for auch a thing.

Most lineage-linked genealogy programs allow one to enter and search events relating to people, but I see the need, in addition, to be able to search for people relating to events.

Sandercock / Saundercock family forum

For the last three months I've been working a lot on the Sandercock families, most of which seem to originate in eastern Cornwall and western Devon in England. I've been trying to link all the ones I find into families. My own branch come from Cardinham in Cornwall, and Ive traced them back to the marriage of William Sandercock to Mary Verran in 1729.

Now I'm trying to bring all Sandercock researchers together, and there is a… Continue

Looking for Sandercocks

My main genealogical activity in the last couple of weeks has been chasing up our Sandercock - Saundercock families. I've just blogged about the earliest ancestors, William Sandercock and Mary Verran, with a picture of their tombstone in Cardinham churchyard in Cornwall, England, over on our main family history blog.

I started a new genealogy database file where I've tried… Continue
