West Sussex families and Surrey families frequently move across the county boundary into Hampshire. If your Surrey family or West Sussex family has disappeared, this may be the explanation.
Records relating to the County of Hampshire are held at Hampshire Record Office in Winchester. I no longer visit Hampshire Record Office.
Copies and transcripts of Hampshire parish registers, Bishop's Transcripts and monumental (gravestone) inscriptions are also held by the Society of Genealogists' Library and the London Family History Centre at the National Archives, both of which I visit regularly.
Please contact me for a free initial assessment of your enquiry. Please provide all relevant details in your e-mail. I regret that I'm unable to offer a free initial assessment if I'm asked to visit your website to locate information.
