Between FindMyPast & FamilySearch, I've managed to find many of my son-in-law's family in Cheshire - marvellous to be able to browse through the records, page by page by page! Plumley, Lower Peover, Crowton and other little places. Whereas my own family (father's mother's lines) in Dudley which was sometimes in Warwick, sometimes in Worcester - it's a large challenge. Perhaps soon...
Thanks for keeping us up to date with these records, John. Much appreciated!
