My name is Stephen P. Urwin and I am the administrator of the newly formed rootsweb surname mailing list.That list is for anyone researching the Urwin surname in the United States, England, Australia or anywhere else in the civilized world.
In the postings immediately following this one I will show my line of Urwins, as it know it, in the United States.I will also show the little information that I have pertaining to my family in Durham Co., England as well as the mention of a 3Gr Granduncle that went to the "gold fields of Australia".
Personally, my research follows any direct line descendant of my ancestors.My database, generated with PAF 5.1.12 is currently at 108,346 people that arerelated to myself or my children through either of my wives.
I look forward to your input as well as your sharing of information on this fine old British family.I bet we all would like to find out just how old it is.
Please feel free to contact me off-List if I can be of any more assistance on the families that I have mentioned.But remember, folks like to see connections made here.There is nothing that I find more frustrating than to see a dialog begin and then all of a sudden end, with no idea how it ended.
