Hi i'm looking for relatives of the Goodhead family from Warrington, particularly Mary Ellen Edwards (nee Goodhead) and Martha Alice Button (nee Goodhead). Please contact me if you have any information on the Goodhead line.
Thanks
Sarah

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.

And, please, when you ask for help, give date info.......it's vital
