Smile Seaching for family members in Accrington

Hi to my new friends.
My name is Shirley Wilson nee South. I live in Australia. I am searching for family members in England. They both lived in Cross Street Accrington in abt 1891.
My father Great grandfather was Charles South , he came to Australia in 1912 with the burgess family, he was the son of Charles South and Ellen Southworth who were married in 1895. Ellen Southworth was the daughter of Thomas and Ellen Southworth nee Hartley.
They were Tripe Dressers.
I read your article on the well known Southworth Tripe Business. Robert Southworth was mentioned I believe that he was my Great Grandmother Ellen Southworth brother.
I would appreciate any information or photos of the Southworth and South families.
Cheers Shirley
PS I don't know how to get about this site.

Re: Seaching for family members in Accrington

Hello Shirley,

do you have a tree on Ancestry or elsewhere on the web?

I find the LAN-OPC is a good site for parish records and I recently wrote a script for myself to export data to an Excel spreadsheet.

Basically what I do is search the Lancashire OnLine Parish Clerk Project - Search website and then mark the data which is returned (I choose to display all records). I then open notepad, paste the data and save as a text file. I then run a script which parses all the data (read it all) and then splits all the lines into fields and saves them to Excel.

It needs a bit of tidying to sort the columns into a more preferable order and add headings to a few of the less important columns, but I could run this for you to identify all the SOUTH and SOUTHWORTH families within a maximum of 90 miles of a specified church (you can't search for anything over 90 miles away) and send you the Excel spreadsheet.

Is there anyone specific you are having particular trouble identifying?

Feel free to send me a personal message.

Regards
