Descendants of James Holder.

I have downloaded my maternal side of my family tree of the Holder family. (see bottom of this page)

This is quite an extensive report which I am happy to share.

But I will say that some of the information may not be fully accurate.

But I do have a number of Marriage. Death and Birth Certificates which maty help you in your research.

If you are a family member or you recognise some family names and would like further information please contact me.

I will help where I can.

Hi Lovely pictures we may possibly have a connection but not sure I have clicked on your link but my net book won't support the file my great grandmother was Elizabeth Lower born in 1883 according to my family tree search she married George Petty I think she was from Newhaven or Lewes I am a novice at the ancestry search at the moment so dates may not be correct I believe one of her relatives married a Holder or Howes perhaps you may be able to correct me on the information I have, it would be interesting to know more about the  Lower family and their loved ones.

Linda. As your netbook won't support rtf files (which is odd!) here is the document as a pdf file. 


Sorry Andy I have already passed on the Holder tree in format which Linda was able to open and read.

Least Linda has a backup now!!
