Hi and welcome to the boards.

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.

You can look for 'Mordecai', born, married or died in 'Sunderland' on free bmd - though not yet completely up to the present:

To find any who are living there now, look in the phone book

But the best way to do your family tree is to research it yourself........
