Well a big day, I've started loading parish records for Cheshire starting with baptism, burial and marriage records for Poynton. To follow will be data for Prestbury and Pott Shrigley together with their associated trees. I have to thank Sue McNulty who has provided transcriptions of the registers and has been patient and thorough in critiquing the trees

Updated marriage,  burial and baptism data ready for insertion into website
Tried to sort out burials to match baptisms of Joseph Needham's born in Rotherham; difficult and not succeeded
Updated Roth 5 Tree - ready to go on website
Received obituary for Uncle Bill following his death on 2 Oct 2016
learning point; Don't forget Bishops transcripts if there are issues with Parish records ie can't read early Rotherham Parish records ie before 1721 but BT's are Ok and online

Updated Rotherham Summary spreadsheet with burial and marriage data from fmp. Clear that the fmp data has much more detail than that on FS/IGI or Ancestry allowing burial data to be accurately attached to a person. The data gives the father or spouse of the deceased. Should be able to update the nons site and generate extensive trees for Rotherham Needham's.

The Needham's are from Derbyshire but have spread world wide. This blog is about my work on the Needham One Name Study I've started. The work is summarised in the associated website ( Needham One Name Study). The study is registered with the Guild of One Name Studies
