About Our Family Research

I have been researching my Rutherford family tree since 1998. It has been a struggle every step of the way. But I have to say I have enjoyed the challenge even if at times I it made me want to give up.

My direct Rutherford line is stuck with Thomas Rutherford born about 1830/31 in Bolton-Le-Moores, Lancashire, England and his parent's. I know for sure that his father's name is Thomas Rutherford. His mothers name is either Agnes Atkinson or Mary Ann Rutherford(Unknown).
Thomas Rutherford (b.1831) immigrated to Australia in 1850/51 where he married, had children and his desendants still live today.

I would love to discover more about my Rutherford's. In the mean time I would love to help others with their research.
