The reason I have chosen this family is that since my genealogical epiphany (see earlier blog post) I have been trying to find time to revisit this family for some time. I tackled this family early in my research, and much of the information I have came from another researcher. That means it all needs verifying. This "genealogy do-over" prompted me to tackle it in a structured way, rather than spasmodically approaching it parish by parish.
I am also using this as an opportunity to test out another genealogy program. Not that I am intending to change the one I use at the moment. But as The Master Genealogist (TMG), which I use, is no longer going to be developed there will probably come a time when I am forced to change. So this current test is using Legacy. All that is happening is that I love TMG even more. Legacy just isn't up to what I am used to and feel that I need.
So anyway, who are my Harding family? I am descended from Elizabeth Harding, daughter James Harding of Henley Grove in Milton Clevedon, who in turn is descended from the Hardings of Mere in Wiltshire.
