Hello Cynthia,
I am very grateful for your comments on my use of the boards. I do not doubt that you have realised that I have not used them before. I am learning slowly.
It had not crossed my mind that I would receive so many replies so quickly. I must make sure that I check the site more often.
Thanks again
Chris

Hello Potty,
Much of my info. has come from Ancestry.com.
I have found the Kirkby Green family on the 1861 census where the surname is spelt "Coleyshaw" and on the 1871 census where it is spelt "Colleshaw"
I am continuing to hunt later censuses.
Yours,
Chris

Welcome to the boards, Christopher. Suggest you remove your email address - not a good idea to post it on a public board where it will also be visible on Google in a short while. If people wish to contact you off the boards, they can do so by clicking on your name and sending you a PM(private message) through Genes.

Can you tell us what research you have done. Also, where did you get the names, birth and death dates from?
