Been working on my ancestors, the Beach family, from Gloucestershire, England. The oldest ancestor is Beach-2589 and then we could find nothing else such as parents or certain places. According to Forest of Dean, this ancestor and his spouse may not have been from Gloucestershire but moved there later. We are not sure. Sadly family uses the first name James a lot so the only way to distinguish between them is their DOB until reaching James Edward Beach in 1838. He is the first to actually have middle name used. Can anyone help as we have been searching for three long years and it seems to no avail. Thank you so much.
