I have an old photocopy of Drake Family research
written about 25-30 years ago. It traces the
Drake family around Staines, Middlesex, England
to the present day at the time (c1973) back
several hundred years.

Happy to help anyone that might be interested.

Best Wishes

Hi there Adam and thanks for letting me know that you have info on the Drake family. Would love a copy of the lineage for the Drake website and credit would go to you as the resource. What is your best way to send it to me?????

I can either post a photocopy, or arrange
to scan the pages and send a cd.
The scanning may take a bit longer, but
would probably be easier.

Please note that there are approx 30-50
A4 pages. The research was done by a
member of the drake family who was a distant
relative of my grandmother.

I have just dug out the papers and found that there are 80 pages of A4 paper.

The research was originally carried out by
a Stephen J Drake in 1974, but I have never
been able to track him down, as my grandmother
doesn't remember him.

I was wondering if you had heard of him?

Using the document, in which I feature, I can
trace my ancestors on the Drake side, back
to 1170, if it is accurate.

Would it be easier, if I transcribed the
document into Microsoft Word, or a family
tree software, so that I could email the
information to you?

This would help to save it for future generations,
but may take me a while.

A nice little project for me...

Best Wishes

Hi there Adam and great to hear from you. That is up to you - a huge project to undertake but much appreciated from a Drake point of view. May be best to do it in MS Word as I'm not sure if all Family Tree programs are compatible. If you still wanted to scan the project I would be able to put it all to MS Word but it would take a while as well.

Hello Adam, please get in touch as my husband is a descendant of the Staines Drakes and we have been trying to locate the mystery family researcher. My husband's grandmother was Mary Charlotte Sophie 'Soph' Drake born Bedfont St Mary in 1890 to Chrisopher Elias Drake b Staines 1862 and Charlotte Bodimead. Please contact me on tidbury@tinyworld.co.uk. Thanks, Mary

I embarked on the task of transcribing the
document covering the Drake Family History
mentioned above, but this is going to be
too big a task.

I think it is going to be easier to scan
the document to an Adobe pdf file.
This would be approximately 4MB in size.

The ones I sent to Mary Tidbury came out well.

Hi Adam,
I understand the problem with transcribing, a PDF
file sounds great to me,
