Researching family tree

MY family originated from Lowestoft and the surrounding area and my branch of the family moved to Scarborough in about 1844 although another branch made the same trip at least 10 years earlier.

MY family originated from Lowestoft and the surrounding area and my branch of the family moved to Scarborough in about 1844 although another branch made the same trip at least 10 years earlier.

I made a visit to Lowestoft Record Office about 1990 and added several hundred individuals to my family tree.

At that time I was in contact with some present day family members but I have mislaid their addresses and phone numbers.

I am now planning another visit to the area and this time I would like to meet any present day relatives or anyone who has an interest in my family tree which has now grown to more than 900 families spanning over 300 years.
