Hi - My name is Mandie and I have been interested in my own family genealogy for the last 40 years. I live in the UK and my searches are largely UK and Ireland based, with some Scottish, French, New Zealand and Canadian branches. I am currently studying the Masters in Genealogy programme at Strathclyde University, Glasgow.
My name searches are (Maternal): Hutchings/Brown/Laney/Simmonds in Berkshire/Hampshire, and Beamish/Quinsey in Dublin and Wexford, Ireland
Paternal lines include: Bell/Watkins and Paige/Deadman in the East end of London and Sussex, UK.
I have a 40-year old brick wall with the Beamish family in Dublin. Lots of theories and suspicions, but no concrete evidence to link various members of the family together.
