Being isolated from the Midlands stronghold of the Youngs, my kids have little knowledge of family outside of their own home town of Peterborough and the initial aim of this website was to link up the Peterborough Youngs with the Birmingham Youngs but, as with most of my plans, things started to change very quickly !

First up, my kids are only half Youngs …… they are also half Blissetts and that’s a whole new set of family links to fathom out and, of course, you can’t work back in time without recognising other significant links with such as the Nash family (Kent), the Clarke family (Yorkshire), the Hopper family (Kent), the Boulton family (Tewkesbury), and many more !

So this website is very much a start …… it may never finish !
