The Genealogical Society of North Orange County
British Research Beyond the Census
OK, so you found those old Brits in every census from 1841 to 1901--now what? What other paths might you follow? What other sources should you research? And which of those can you investigate before personally crossing the Atlantic? Hal Horrocks will provide some excellent suggestions!
A native Californian and longtime Orange County resident, Mr. Horrocks is a professional genealogist, teacher, and lecturer. He has been doing family research for 15 years and is a member of Association of Professional Genealogists, Genealogical Speakers Guild, Orange County California Genealogical Society, Genealogical Society of North Orange County California, Guild for One-Name Studies, Manchester & Lancashire Family History Society (UK), and Cheshire Family History Society (UK). In addition, he has developed a web site for the Horrocks surname that includes a one-name study, a DNA study, and family trees for Horrocks researchers.
