Hi :-) My Maiden Name was/is OLD. I would seriously like to contact an OLD in Yorkshire, as my Dad (Dad died in 1975 before internet and so forth, so Dad had only Oral History to go by) told my only brother , David, that our OLD family originated in Yorkshire, England. I have so far gotten back to c1709 with a William OLD dying in 1784 in Dorset, England, but no idea as yet where he was born. My branch of the OLD family here in Tasmania, Australia, has followed the tradition (according to my father ) of having small families. Also between 1856 to 1947 there has only been 3 Generations born. Which is unusual for families here. it's roughly a 40-50 years gap between generations. IF you would, hopefully, like to let me know what you think on any of this please, feel absolutely free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
