Generation Two – Hannah Maud Mabel Barrett

47 Generations of Family History
Generation Two
Hannah Maud Mabel Barrett
(1890 – 1957)

Introduction

I decided to put these posts together to showcase my families journey through time, I will include as many sources as I can and in some cases explain how I found the records and what records are available. In most cases I will be looking at the facts rather than writing a detailed biography on each person.

A full list for each generation can be found on my new Generations page, and this page will be added to as I move through my family history.

My journey begins in Essex, England in 1930 with the birth of my Grandmother – Rosie May Janes and I begin by following her maternal line to the County of Dorset and then onto a new family line, different county’s and eventually different country’s.

I hope to showcase how you can research your family history beyond the Parish Records and how a family line can alter as we move further back in time.
