Try Search Trees to see if anyone has them listed.

Otherwise you need to work around what you know of the family to see if there are desendents

Thank you Shirley for information. I was surprised to learn how 'young' my great grandparents were when they died. I suppose 'young' compared to today. My late grandmother never spoke about her own family to my late mother, and I find it sad that I have learned so much since my mother died that my own mother would have been pleased to know about.

Hi Joan,, thank you for your information. I seem to have two accounts (by accident) on Genes Reunite and I may have replied to you using the other account. I have been a member of the Witheridge family History for several years, and was given a Witheridge family tree line down to me, but it didn't include the 'married' partners history,I,e,my maternal great grandmother.
