Re: John Wardman. North Bierley
Thanks for getting in touch. I have also had much help from Daphne, who sent me some great documents.
I had a very brief visit to Fewston and Killinghall for the first time one week ago, the villages are in a very beautiful area.My father’s line and mother’s line both converge here, so I am interested in finding out more.
I am the G Grandchild of John Wardman (b 1873 Otley and also lived in N.Bierley) and I think that I am the G.G. grandson of William Wardman b 1828 (Dacre), who was son of John (b. Killinghall 1800).I have only been researching my family tree for a short time so I have not had time to double check my sources but I am now sending off for birth and marriage certificates.
I have also just bought a computer program, called family historian, to enter in the information.The manual says that it creates GEDcom files which are transferable by email. I’m no expert but I’ll try to send you one.
Anyway, do we have a common ancestor? If so it would be nice to here from you again.
