Hi! I am just starting to research my family history and came across this forum- I know it is a bit off-topic but I wondered if you might know something about my family branch which originated as far as I know in the area of West Sussex around Selsey. The family were all seafarers and fishermen and some in the Royal Navy, so maybe some of my forebears crossed the Atlantic to become some of yours too! I have a tree which only goes back to about 1750 or so - and am looking for clues to get back further... Any help gratefully received!William Light V in my line anyway!!
