Family Trees from Yorkshire. Some years ago I decided to find out who my ancestors were. How they lived and see what made me. Me! Back in the 1980's long before computers made genealogy what it is today. I spent more hours in various Records Offices, Libraries looking through census returns and parish records, climbed over more gravestones in more cemeteries than I care to remember, resulting in this book. I hit a brick wall with my Knowles ancestors when I got back to the 1770's. Not being able to go back, I decided to branch off sideways, and look into some of the families connected to my family through marriage. This book contains 13 Family Trees with hundreds of names, dates, births, marriages and deaths of families from the Huddersfield/Barnsley and other areas of Yorkshire, England. Including some families who emigrated to the USA and Australia. All the families are connected to each other and together they make up a Yorkshire Family Genealogy.
