I have just stumbled on this web site and am taking advantage to see if anyone can help me.

I am searching for some of my ancestors.  My great grandfather was Frederic Williams and my great grandmother was Alice Barracliffe.  They had 15 children and one of them Harold (Harry) was my grandfather, born in Wardha/India who married Evelyn Adelaide Quarman, my grandmother. They had 12 children one of them being my mother, Kathleen Williams who married William Bernard Sharpe. Any information on this will be most welcome or even suggestions of where to look for them. I have also been trying to contact Jennifer Sutton to no avail so if you see this Jennifer please contact me.  You are my second cousin. Thanks for any help..Sincerely, Colleen Sharpe colleensharpe@telefonica.net
