The idea: to gather together as much genealogy information as
possible from the general area of Bolsterstone, Deepcar and
My SHAW ancestors came from here ..
|The families have lived here for generations, and the
difficulty one has to sort out the Johns and Janes, Williams and Marys is
In the year 2000 I came to the conclusion that the whole area was connected and it wouldn't be long before I would find links to most of the names in the church registry books.
So I started collecting them all.
Not just SHAW but everyone who was either born, married or buried at Bolsterstone or just happened to be passing through ....
Over the years the database has expanded from the original 5000 to over 19,000. (August 2009)
Please note: these pages are the result of 1000s of hours of work. This is my hobby .. and I hope it will help other people interested in the area ..
It is not my intention (and never will be) to use this information for any commercial gain and if I ever find out that this information is being sold then I'll get real mad !!
