I am trying to find anyone that is on my Grandfathers tree. He was James Clark. He lived in Goldthorpe S Yorkshire. I know for a fact he had an elder brother called William. His parents are John Clark and Louisa (nee Dye). I believe William married and had 2 daughters. I think they went to live in the Doncaster area. Anyone that knows anything about this family I would love to hear.

If anyone on here is researching them, they should have the names in their tree(s)

Look in 'search all trees'....assuming you have some dates, and birthPLACE, as opposed to place of abode.

Have you tried researching the family yourself?

Thank you for the research. Due to family commitments this is the 1st time for months I have been able to come on this site.

Have you followed the advice about looking in 'search all trees'?

If so, have you contacted the other member with Louisa in her GR tree?

Joy

Joy Report 18 Jun 2013 19:33

Yes I have done this, but they haven't come any further on from Louisa, they have traced further back and one of her siblings.

Well, William Clark is such a common name that finding him is not likely to be easy, unless you have some idea of who he married, or the names of his children

Who registered the deaths of the parents?
