Subject: Yeo Family Hello Sheila I saw your message on the Genforum board asking people who had contacted you in the last 12 months to send their email addresses to you. I have changed my internet provider since I last contacted you, so I have a new email address. I can't remember - did I send you details of our family? (my GG Grandmother was Elizabeth Ann Yeo, daughter of James Yeo and Elizabeth Braund) I remember that you sent me a lot of Yeo stuff but I can't remember whether or not I sent you our stuff in return. Regards Sheila Handley 18 Victoria Way Walton-on-the-Hill Stafford ST17 0NU

Hello again Sheila Of course you may add me to the YEO LINK page, I would be delighted to be recognised as being part of such a large clan! I'm not sure how to send you details of our tree - would you be able to extract the data from a Gedcom? Best wishes Sheila Handley

Yeos of Milton Damerell

Dear Sheila, I was fascinated to find your site recently, my maternal grandmother was a Yeo. After a bit of research ( I`m still a bit of a novice really ) I traced the line back to my GGGG grandparents James Yeo and Elizabeth Braund of Milton Damerell. It was a pleasant surprise to find reference to them and their offspring on the researcher`s page. However I was slightly alarmed to see that my gg grandfather William James died when he was about 4 - this raises questions about my existence ! I wasn`t sure whether I should write to Sheila Handley or to you about this. I`ve added some information, though the two other children of George Yeo have been added soley on what I read on the ( familysearch.org) transcription of the 1881 census. They were living at Carnvilla Cottage Milton Damerell at the time. I haven`t got as far as GEDCOM file exporting etc. It sounds complicated. I wish I could send a tree of mine. I hope this is ok and you don`t mind me doing this !
