Hello and welcome.
My name is Paul Shaw and I have been researching my family history since the mid 1980’s.
After meeting Guild members at the WDYTYA show in 2016 I got to thinking about my Mothers “Gurr” family name.
I was shown a copy of the 1881 census which showed the number of Gurr’s living in the UK at that time (Not Many).
Most were centered around the south east of England in the Kent area, with splatterings of individuals here and there across the UK..
This led me to think more about the guild and how it would be good to research all those families in the right way.
So, two years on and I have jumped in head first.
This Site is going to be the first port of call for visitors, with the beginnings of my research posted here followed later by another site tacked on for data entry.
Please follow my journey as I search out all those Gurr’s past and present. I will be posting Blog entries as I unearth anything interesting as well as a side page of general whats new in the search.
