Have you tried searching "Search all member trees" - under "Search" at top right of this page?

A lot of people have Holylands in their trees. If any of them match those in your tree, click on "Find out more" to the right of each result, and contact the tree owner, explaining your interest.

BUT be aware that there are lots of trees on GR whoch belong to people who are no longer members for one reason or another, or who may have changed their email address without letting GR know - in which case they will not receive notification of your message.
some others may recieve your message but no longer be interested in family history, in which they probably won't reply either.
But you many be lucky!

It's not very likely that anyone with a Holyland in their tree will just happen to come across your post here - it's best to be pro-active.

Or if there's something specific you want help with, let us know, giving us some names and dates to start us off, and we'll be delighted to try to help.
