Forum: General Family History Queries

Although it is best to use specific forums for various topics, this one is for general topics that don't otherwise have a home.

  3. Where does one go from here?

    Okay, so I've traced my family back to Richard Pescod and Elizabeth Gates, married Oct 16 1770 in Midhurst, Sussex. How do I continue on from here?
