Hello Doreen, you can use the 'Search' at top of page to see if anyone else has these names in their tree, and then send them a message. You can also use the search, left of board, to see if anyone else has posted the names.

Rather than trust anyone else's research, you'd be better off doing your own, with help from people on here, if you wish, and as long as you verify the info

That way, you know that what you put in your tree is as accurate as you can make it

Cumbria did not exist before 1974.................
