Re: Womersleys before civil registration in U.K.
Hi, Evelyn, My name is Carol Womersley, originally from Sheffield, I've been researching my family, on and off, for a few years. My 4th Great grandfather was Christopher Womersley, born around 1795 in Clifton, Hartshead. He moved to Sheffield in the 1830's.
In the International genealogical index, I found a "Kester" Womersley, born in 1795 in Clifton (Kester apparently is an alternative name for Christopher!) his parents, George Womersley and Esther Woodcock and family group sheets from 1750's in the Library in Salt Lake City. I'm planning to go up to the record office in Dewsbury to check it. There has been a lot of research done by someone in the LDS church into the Womersleys of Clifton/Hartshead, judging by the number of records I found in the Library in Salt Lake City, so I don't think another Christopher would've been missed.
If any of this sounds familiar, please let me know!!
