Hi Ray, The Sheffield & District Family History Society have a website at http://www.sheffieldfhs.org.uk/. Poeple on there will be helpfull & you can join for a a small annual sum if you wish.

There is also the Sheffield Indexers which has a wealth of info on it at http://www.sheffieldindexers.com/

You can make an entry in the message forum on these to establish who may be researching your names but ensure you include as much info as possible about your family ie full names , dates & places of birth etc.

If you send me a PM with those details I will try to help you too

John

Here's a hint for the Indexers site :

if you are searching for, say, someone called jones put

*jones*

is the surname search box; same for most of the fields; e.g. use *danville* in the address bit to find Danville Street. Slightly annoying but gives better results.

A nice touch is that you can fill in a year to search when searching Directories.

Thanks for the info Ill go take a look
