Hello, This is David Burt, the new co-ordinator for the Hampshire Gen. I am excited to add more to  this site having been involved with Hants research for twenty years now. Thus far, the Burt's have been  traced back to the mid 1600's and are scattered throughout the  west side of Hampshire, which  will be referred to as "Hants" as it is thus called in Britain.

 I hope to be able to assist with tips that will make things more clear. Family Researcher  is a free site  that teaches tips on where to look and how to do research in England.  There will be much more to  come. Please feel free to contact me.

 While I am willing to  help you learn how to do your research, time does not permit me to do the  actual  research for you.

 There are those, however, I know, who are accredited and will do research for  you. If  you wish, I can  put you in touch with some of them; but neither I nor this site can or will  take credit or responsibility for  any third party who you might contract with. They can be quite expensive, and sometimes the yield may  not be in the ratios of what you wish.

To date, I have placed about a 3rd of the marriage records for Hants on line. Anyone wishing to share what they have extracted is welcomed to contact me.

Hampshire, administrative, geographic, and historic county of south central England, bounded west by Dorset and Wiltshire, north by Berkshire, east by Surrey and West Sussex, and south by the English Channel. The administrative, geographic, and historic counties cover somewhat different areas. The administrative county comprises 11 districts: East Hampshire, Hart, New Forest, Test Valley, the boroughs of Basingstoke and Deane, Eastleigh, Fareham, Gosport, Havant, and Rushmoor, and the city of Winchester. The geographic county comprises the whole of the administrative county plus the cities of Portsmouth and Southampton, each of which is a unitary authority. The historic county covers the entire geographic county, the unitary authorities of Bournemouth and the Isle of Wight, and the borough of Christchurch and parts of the district of East Dorset, which together form the eastern edge of the administrative county of Dorset.
