    Hello All,

    Found this site by luck whilst hopping around the internet of things.

    Started researching my family lines late 2017.

    I am a Newell born and bred East London UK, with my roots from Guilden Morden Cambridgeshire.

    Looking to chat / discuss with anyone who can directly cross reference with my family lines, and looking to improve my approach and effectiveness in researching.
    Enjoy your searching

    Kind regards

    Hello John and Welcome!
    We may need to message each other if you have some roots from the Huntingdonshire area! I have an older distant cousin who went to the US as a war bride who I am in contact with. She was a Newell.

    Hi Susan,
    Thanks a lot for your reply and offer of assistance.
    I am stumped on a John Newel / Newell from Guilden Morden Cambridgeshire. Died 1828 there and married there. Calculate his birth as 1780, but can not find any accurate and certifiable info of birth etc. May of course born out of the county, really want to stay away from guessing. Does your cousin do family history stuff? confidence not very high of connection but you never know.

    Be glad to hear from you.

    Kind regards
    John J Newell

    Hi John....yes, she does some family history, however she is elderly and her internet isn't the best, I will ask her about John.

    Everyone on here will be glad to help as well, I'm certain!
