About the study

My interest in my ancestors began as a teenager.  My Currall grandparents died in the 1940s when my dad was a boy.  Fortunately, Dad had older brothers and sisters who were happy to share family reminiscences with me.  I still have some scrappy notes that I made at the time, but how I wish I’d recorded them in more detail.  In 1983, I discovered Family History Societies and Record Offices; since then I’ve continued researching my own family history and also keeping details of all occurrences of the Currall surname.

The One Name Study for the surname CURRALL, which is registered with the Guild of One Name Studies, started in April 2017.  I feel it is an exciting way to develop my surname interest and link with other Curralls internationally.
