Ballard Genealogy and Heraldry

Ballard Heirlooms

Ballard related manuscripts, registers, bibles etc in private hands and some of 

which may be available for purchase.

Many Ballard researchers, myself included, have been fortunate enough to have had documents or other items "passed down" in the family or have actively searched them out and purchased them. If you have an "heirloom" that you would like to share with the Ballard community please get in touch and I will feature it here. In the interests of security I will not say where it is held - just in case one of you really does have the family jewels and no burglar alarm! Also, some people have Ballard material that is not related to their line and which they are prepared to offer to other Ballard researchers at a fair price.

Family Registers & Bibles

Do you have a Family Register or Bible that you want to share with other researhcers? It could be digitised and made into an eBook.
