Laming Family

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Esther Report 27 Jul 2013 18:53

Am looking to find any members of the Laming family of Bermondsey London, especially any family of the Laming boys of Hadland Street. My mother moved to Gloucester and I am just interested in her early years in London and her family.

Welcome to the Boards Esther.

Try using the Search Tree funtion under the Search button at the top of the page and send a message to anyone who has them listed. There is a very low chance that a descendent will see your message

If you'd care to give us some names, dates and locations then we will see what we can do. Be sure to say which name was your mother so that we don't try and find you :-D

Have a look yourself on Freebmd or any other site you subscribe to including GR for marriages and the birth of children
