Welcome to our forum ~ please post your questions below.
I know that my family worked as sheresmiths, razor finishers and similar occupations in Sheffield throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. I know they lived one time in Thomas Street and Bath Street and Sims Croft. I assume they never moved far. They were all Maxfields.
I would love to find out more details of what their work involved, where they worked, who they might have worked for, did they work at home, etc? Also can I get photos/ pictures?
On a more personal note I would love to find some family photos as my own family have none/ lost them etc. My family tree is public on Ancestry as the McGrail/ Maxfield tree so if you are on there or know anyone who is please get in touch.
Thanks to anyone who may be able to help in this quest.
Many folks do not have Ancestry so if you can be more specific with full names and dates to start us off it would be most helpful.
