hiya all ,
I think most of it is frustrating. Do you know if the would post me a list
of the gave names ?
is i was to write to them.
I think they should have a team of people and make it all available on the
web and have it so it cost as little as possible to view.
I haven`t been able to get to Devizes to do look ups. will get out there one
I only got to Burbage as i have a good friend that had some spare time
so far i have got most of my information from my aunt and the rest burbage
site and the burbage rootsweb list.
well thanks again people for all your help
keep up the good work
