Welcome to my new Website.

The Genealogy of a North Yorkshire Family.

The idea for this family history research arose out of the release of the 1901 English and Welsh Census onto the Internet in 2002. The amount of family information I had at that stage was quite small, I knew the names of my Grandparents along with some snippets of information including some photographs and World War 1 medals. I only ever knew one of my grandparents, the others having died before I was born or soon after.

The 1901 census record for each of the grandparents is shown on the Census page, in addition the 1911 record is also shown although the information did not become available until seven years after the 1901 census. It became obvious fairly early on in the research that the Goldsbrough surname had been passed on via a female line with the birth of James Goldsbrough (Wright) in 1839. This means that the Goldsbrough side of the family also needed to include Wrights.

I shall be adding more pages to this site over the coming months. Use the horizontal navigation bars to navigate to the various sections of the site. Within each section there is a sidebar allowing navigation to the relevant pages. The News section is a blog of new information as it becomes available.

If you need to contact me, please use the contact form alongside.

There are links below to some of the pdf documents created during my research.  To see a complete list of the documents go to the useful links page and The Yorkshire Family Tree Rediscoverd tab.
