Harrogate Genealogy

Love those websites that deal with a specific community, especially if it's one in your family history. I'm referring to the sites where someone has put in considerable work based on their love for their community.

There's one for the North Yorkshire resort community of Harrogate. What's special about it is the amount of genealogical information available.

Harrogate People and Places  www.harrogatepeopleandplaces.info/ provides basic information, but what you want is the Harrogate Names Database  http://sites.google.com/site/harrogatenamesdatabase/ . It's a bare bones list of names, including data extracted from Harrogate newspapers and Property Deeds. if you find someone of interest contact researcher, Tony Cheal, and ask for more detailed information.
