Trying to trace the family history


ArgyllGran Report 18 May 2024 15:34

Can you give us some names and dates, please?
How much do you know already?

What research have you done yourself?
How far back have you gone?

Looking at 1861 census - completely at random, as I don't know what years you're interested in - there were Beards in seven different households in High Easter:

There were lots of Beards in High Easter in all the censuses 1841 - 1921.

You'll have to give us details of some particular Beards you want to follow.

Not a very informative post.

PLEASE give us some idea of what you already know

Is this your family - not that of a friend?

There is a previous thread about Lodge of High Easter, to which Terence didn’t bother to return, despite several members sending PM’s requesting him to do so

That thread shows poster’s mother’s maiden name to be Beard…………..

As Erika says - a not very informative post.
This is the Living Relatives board - so is that what you are after? In which case it is not what you suggest in your OP, which could be read as a request for someone to do All your research for you.
I expect the other thread Erika mentions is full of good advice.

If you are hoping for living relatives to contact you, I'm afraid it's highly unlikely that any will happen to spot your post here.

Try searching for names of Beards that you know, on "Search all member trees" under "Search" at top right of this page.
If there are results for any of them, click "Find out more" beside the tree "owner"'s name, and send a message explaining your interest.

Poster’s grandparents were John Beard born 1888 at Good Easter and Bertha Beaney born 1895 in Hampstead.

They produced several offspring……

I will not research further back until the poster returns and adds feedback. It would be a waste of time
