Scans and transcript of a hand written book of Notes on family of Hadfields; Derbyshire & Yorkshire; EDALE & Holderness.

Marion Wilkinson in Australia has been researching - and helping many people - for several years. She has now agreed that I may publish some transcripts which she sent to help me, so here you will find an Index to Marion's Transcripts. The transcripts contain information from Derbyshire, Cheshire, Yorkshire and Lancashire. Most of the data relates to the HADFIELD name but the Marriage (naturally) and MI entries contain other names also.
