  3. Sticky Thread Sticky: General Family History

    Hello folks. This is just a reminder that this forum exists. As well as general questions on family and local history; it's as good a board to use as any if you've 'lost' someone, somewhere and want to begin tracking them. I'm sure that you know the sort of thing I mean, an ancestor was...

  6. A deformed or malformed Gene.

    Some of my threads over the years have been 'laughed at' as the ramblings of a senile gemtleman. Said gentleman happens to be my father, still alive at almost 92 and desperately seeking to know who his father was. My dad was illegitimate and only found out in 1950 the true relationships of...

    Hi, I've found a family connection with the Suffocks/Suffockes of Nuneaton, Warwickshire (17th century) but I've no idea about the meaning of the surname. Does the surname simply imply that the family came from Suffolk ? Regards Adrian

  17. Name Origin?

    I have come across the first name Guster for a woman in my family tree, I know it's very rare with only 16 instances in the UK in 1881, but does anyone know it's origins? Her family have a few slightly odd names, but none as odd as this one, I wonder where they got it from? She was born in 1848.
