RESEARCHING MY FAMILY HISTORY

My grandparents and my great grand parents used to live in Pontefract and I am trying to gather information about them, and trying to go back even further in time. This is not really easy, as I donít really know where to start. I have birth certificates for both my grandparents as well as their marriage certificate but thatís all.

My mum Eileen married a French man (my father) and has been living in France for more than 40 years. Just in case it would be of any interest, my grandfather, Joe Firth worked at the elementary school in the thirties and married my grandmother Kathleen in 1931 in Pontefract. My great grandfather Arthur Firth was a curator and my other great grandfather Henry Johson was a carpenter. The first married Lilly Mounsey, the second, Ann Maria Johnson. Thatís about all I know. Thereís even a photograph of one of my great grandfatherís in a small book about Pontefract that my Mum has at home.
