14th July 2016 Under the heading of Certificates, the birth certificate registration list for Burgum and Burgham has been completed for births between 1837 and 1920. Where the actual certificate has be found or purchased, clicking BC at the end of the line will show you a copy of the certificate details. If the annotation is in lower case (bc) it indicates I only have the baptism certificate, which has less information. The marriage and death certificate registrations lists will be completed as soon as possible. There are continuous modifications being made to the website, but I am only notifying them here when a particular list is completed. 65 birth certificates are now available. The list of birth registrations to 1920 numbers 854! Clearly it is not possible to buy them all at £9.25 per time. If you, or your family have any BURGUM or BURGHAM birth, marriage or death certificates please send me a copy. If the person is no longer living I will put it on the website. If they are still living, it will go in the safe! (old family pictures, family stories or current news are also welcome!)
1 September 2015 The DD family tree has been added to the Family Trees section. The family begins in Liverpool, where many of the family still live. Some moved to Wales, while others now live in London, the South of England and elsewhere. Click on each individuals name to read their details. Living people are not identified on the family tree unless permission is given by family members.
25 August 2015 Take a look at the latest news added to the "Latest family News" section of the website (see the top menu).
25 August 2015 The "AA" family tree has been added to the website. Due to the huge size, the website has been divided into three sections but they all appear in the list as "AA" family tree, "AA" family tree part two and "AA" family tree part three. The second two sections relate to two sections of the family, which are exceptionally large - part two relates to the Mormon section of the family when Charlotte Burgum and her husband Frederick Weight went from Gloucestershire to Salt Lake City, Utah and the section section (part three) relates to part of the family that settled in Hyde, Manchester, generating a substantial family. It is possible to jump between the 3 family trees or select them from the "Family Trees" menu above. Hundreds of hours are being put into adding all the family trees as soon as possible.
18 July 2015 New text, pictures and family information has been added to "The Places" section of the website (see above). So far Cinderford has been added as a new page, while Aston Ingham, Llanfiangel Llantanam (Wales), Mitcheldean, Taunton and Upton on Severn have been updated and other locations will have information and pictures added over the next few weeks. Enjoy!
02 July 2015 Over the last three days, while visiting my family in the UK, I dashed around Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Monmouthshire looking for churches, farms and locations where the Burgums and Burghams worshipped, worked and lived. I took numerous photographs and these will be added to the website in due course.
28 June 2015 There is a new section in the "Gen Guide" (see above) of the website called "Dates in History". I will be adding more dates from time to time, but this is enough to be getting on with. Why? It is not enough to see when and where our ancestors lived, but what else was going on around them at the time? Our ancestors survived many deadly diseases including the Black Death, Cholera and the 1918 Influenza pandemic of 1918-19 when 100 million people died worldwide! How do I know they survived? Well, because without them and/or their children we would not be here today. Why not take a look?
30 May 2015 The following family trees are now active - HH family tree (mainly Bolton and Bury), JJ family tree (John Burgum, the artist, and his family in New Hampshire and beyond), LL family tree (Cinderford area of the Forest of Dean), PP family tree (Bolton and Derby areas), VV family tree (some of the Burghams in the Forest of Dean) and YY family tree (Henry Burgum, the Bristol pewterer). More family trees will be added very soon!
25 May 2015 Burgum and Burgham News is now active. Simply click "Our News" on the top of the page menu to see what our fellow Burgums and Burghams are up to!
1 May 2015 Although there appears to be a big gap between the updates on this page, nothing could be further from the truth! There is an on-going project to populate the Birth Certificate and Marriage Certificate lists, which is a very long process. Once this project is complete, the lists will be re-ordered to make more sense.

23rd February 2013 There have been numerous additions to the lists of Birth and Marriage Certificates, additions to various Census pages and additions to Parish Registers. (There are too many for me to list individually!) The USA Census Returns section has been separated into the various years (1810-1940) at Census Index and will be added to in due course.
28th November 2012 A new list of Parish Register Burials has been created from a number of sources with nearly 500 Burgums and Burghams listed.
19th November 2012 The Social Security Index USA has been updated with twelve more names added.
18th November 2012 I have integrated the Tameside Burial Index into a "General Burial Index" so that all listings are on one place. It is still possible to select the original Tameside Burial Index from General Burial Index as in carries a lot more information. If you can add details of more burials, please get in touch.
7th September 2012 It is not uncommon in the world of family history to encounter "Brick Walls" so I have place one such brick wall on the "Can You Help" page. Two separate Burgums share the middle name Avery - Arthur Avery Burgum and Joseph Avery Burgum. Are they brothers, cousins and what is the Avery connection? And why is it so difficult to work in out? Can you help?
7th September 2012 Loads more information added to the page "Kempley" on the list "The Burgum Places" to reflect further discoveries about the Burgums (also spelt Burgam, Burgham, etc) who lived in this village.

1st September 2012 A new page "Pubs of the Forest of Dean" has been added to the list "The Burgum Places" . It gives details of the pubs that were owned or managed by Burgums or Burghams.
