Hi I am just trying to take my family tree back even further, I have got to George Harrison 1641-1716 married Isobell Preston , I think i have this right that he is the father of Stephen Harrison 1685-1747. Can anyone help?
I am the daughter of Harrison Carradice, my Great Grandmas was Bridgit Harrison who married John Carradice.

That is as far as I can get in my hubby's tree - trouble is most of the church records were not kept during the civil war. Many people guess but that is not right.

Welcome to the site Tricia. Keep digging and talking to us. It's amazing how eventually someone clocks the discussion and comes up with something new.

Hi everyone. I am new to this site having just found it. My name is Ann Harrison. I am a descendant of Richard Harrison who was born in/near Tosside in/near 1824 and emigrated to Canada. I will be travelling to the are in April and would love some hints or ideas on where to pick up info on family lineage. Thanks.

Welcome to the site Harrisa, there is a lot of Harrison information on here so it's worth using the search button! Local libraries are good places to start.

Look in the masthead Harrisa, thre's a box labelled search. If you put Harrison in there you'll have enough to keep you going for a while. I'll bump the Harrison Index entries for you to start on. Look for the topic in active topics.
