Just wanted to pop in here and publicly thank Carol for all the help she's given me.

For those of you on Ancestry it's now a huge fee to access Great Britain's record base.
Having a 'local' source has been a tremendous boon in getting verifications.

On the notes posted....
any I think of I have been asking her personally as we have been 'talking' a lot.

BUT DO NOT assume you know genealogy of other countries because you are proficient here in the USA data.
Case in point is Carol's statement about Christenings.
All my data was off because I has those dates instead of birth dates.
It caused me to miss a few people and a whole line.

Also don't be afraid of Jail records.
Anyone who disagreed w/ Crown or Church of England policy could be jailed.
They are GREAT records.

And lastly there's the spelling.
It is indeed phonetic even today.
My Family are Brummy's.
From here in the USA pronounced Birmingham, England......
My Family spells it Brumagen now.
But Bromigan, Bromigham, Broomingham, Brumagem, Bromagen are also Kin.
