Williamson of Co Durham: Maureen, Pauline & David

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Unknown Report 28 Mar 2013 17:38

Maureen, Pauline & David Williamson of Co Durham are my cousins whom I have never met. They are part of the Williamson family in Consett Co Durham. My parents Stanley & Elizabeth (Betty) moved away in the 1950's so I would love to 'meet' these long lost cousins.

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.

As Williamson is a fairly common surname, it would help if you know more information about them.
Do they have middle initials, and have you got year of birth for each?
When were their parents born, and have they since died, as the information on the death certificate can be useful.
You said that your parents moved away in the 1950's, but you have not said what sort of age anyone was then. Were the children still babies and you had not been born?

George, Leslie, Norman and Stanley, 1916 to 1923, appear to be the original 4 brothers.
Are the 3 people you name the children of one of the brothers, or one from each of your uncles?
