'Bancroft Blog'

I have aded a new feature to the blog, which shows which articles are the most popular and get the greatest number of hits.

'Bancroft baptism / marriages / burials'

More baptism, marriages & burials details for families in the Yorkshire area. Some are taken from local Newspaper Obituaries and some are from None-Conformist Registers so do not have full details, but I thought they might be useful to researchers.

'Some Yorkshire Bancroft Census Records'

More families added to the census details for 1841 to 1891

'Your Yorkshire Bancroft Ancestor Details'

Stuart Bancroft, who lives in New Zealand, is another researcher who is trying to find more information on his Bancroft line from Lightcliffe, Nr Halifax. I know there are several others researching the same line....can anyone help him?
