I have today just started a project, which if I'm honest, I am  unsure how it all works at this time, no doubt I will pick it up and get better as time goes on!. The point is though, it's at least started! 

The project is Initially on the family name of PARR and is aimed at those people in England with that specific name. If possible, we may as Parr's be able to eventually link or at the very least help each other, in our ultimate quest, to get as far as we can in our family histories.

Nice looking page Gordon
The Parr line is recorded from 1210 in the Village of Parr Lancashire one Lord Parr back from Crusade built a wing to Parr Hall. From that date to my birth all is listed. If you can assert to being related to John Parr master brick maker 1840s-1920s one can say we are related. If you cam how you had been called to court on inheritance in offices of Percy Hughes solicitors Birkenhead Cheshire as proof of Parr blood not that of household servants taking the family name then we may talk bloodlines. You will know if you ask older relatives as each of us gained a certain amount of cash in this meeting as of willed right. I was 5 years of age at this time and mine was invested so to give me a living when retired.I bless my ancestor each day for that. That date was June 1956. Waiting for response. But beware many many have tried this route already.
