Rye in East Sussex Town Guide

Wood Family


I am researching my great grandmother-Susannah Amelia Wood who was born in Rye in 1874.Apparently many of her family died in one incident as life boat men. Any information would be gratefully received, I live in Greenwich, SE London-so not too far away.She was also related to Henry Wood i.e. second cousin??
Many thanks Deana

    Hi Deana,

    I am also interested in researching my family tree, and have done really well so far!

    I recommend you try the genes reunited site. You can search census records, as well as share info with others who might share Susannah your great grandmothers tree.If you are lucky you will then benefit from all their research!I hope this helps you!

    Good luck.
