To find out if anyone else has researched this family have you tried "Search All Trees" under the Search button above?

You can put the names of the family in and see if anyone else has them.

If you find a possible match you can contact the tree owner to see if you have a connection.

I would suggest that you delete the automatic message about looking at their tree. Most members will not open their trees to you until a connection has been established so just type your own message about who you think you may have in common.

A tree on another well known site has William married twice - to Hester with children born 1842 to 1859 AND to Sarah with children 1853 &1855!! The father is living in Somerset and Yorkshire in 1841. But no marriage dates to argue about............
