Below are a list of all the surnames
that I am researching in various counties across the United Kingdom.
I have an ever growing collection of "long lost cousins", so would love to hear
from you if you are researching any of the surnames below. I may also be
able to put you in contact with others researching many of the surnames below.
My family pages only give reference to people who are no longer alive. All the people
mentioned in these pages did once exist and through the use of birth, marriage and death certificates,
censuses, parish registers, to name but some of my sources, I have attempted to find the story of My Family
and retrace the Footprints... that they left, hence my name for this site.
Acknowledgements will be given on the various family pages to the wonderful people who
have helped me in the course of my research. Without their help, I wouldn't have got this far, so I
am eternally grateful.
