Thank you to all of you who have helped my find my family. I have found family members lost more than 40 years ago and we are now arranging a reunion.

Can anyone tell me how to research the family in earlier times? i.e. prior to the 1841 census. It must be possible lots have done it; I simply don't know how.

Please help me,

Thanks again David
