Do you have any ancestors who originated in Unsworth, Whitefield, Bury, Prestwich areas in Lancashire.
Love to hear from you if you have.

GR provides 'search all trees' for enquiries such as yours.

Find it under the 'search' button

Have you tried researching the name?

Thanks but I am just trying to find anyone I have missed! I would not know their first name of course.

Put the name(s) you know in 'search all trees'

That's the way to find whether anyone else is researching them
