Could anyone offer me information on my gt gt gt gt gt Grandmother Rebecca Rainforth 1710 of East Butterwick? She married George Benson and although I am able to trace her descendants I can not trace her ancestors.

East Butterwick is...............where?

Only someone who has researched the name can offer info.

Have you looked in 'search all trees'?

How did you find her year of birth?

Sorry, East Butterwick Lincolnshire. I have searched trees but I can only trace back to her birth and nothing about her ancestors.

Where did you find her baptism?

I found her DOB on a tree but no information before that so I have no idea who her ancestors were.
