Help Connect Billy Idol to the Big Tree?

+3 votes
Wouldn't it be great if we could talk Billy Idol into coming to the Reunion? Even if he doesn't he should be connected to the rest of WikiTree. I have started his family, based on his Wikipedia page and his autobiography. If some of you skilled in British and Irish families want to dive in and help, I think we have a good start. Linked his grandfather, Alfred, and we know his maternal grandfather's name, as well. These are the first open profiles, but Billy has lots of aunts and uncles we can work on, too. Just ask and I can add you to the profiles.

Thanks! Post here to discuss research issues and keep track of who is working on what.

HI, I have my family Broad line traced back to Thomas Broad of ~1780.  Do we have any more details as to the parents or siblings or Birth location of Albert Broad?
We don't. It would be great if we could get him connected to your ancestor!

Got one! It would be great if we could get an English connection, too.

The existing connection point is Eliza Jane Swisher Crawford, who is 30 steps from AJ.

From Eliza to Billy it goes:

Eliza's son, William Crawford

His son, Percy Crawford

His wife, Lillian Wiseman Mathis Crawford

Her son, Robert T. Mathis

His daughter, Linda Mathis

Her daughter, Bonnie Broad

Her father, Billy Idol, 37 steps from AJ.

Nice work Erin, I was trying to find info on Linda Mathis parents last night and was having trouble - though I found her tubmler account. haha  Perri Lister's parents were Herbert Stanley Lister and Gail Kendall.
