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.
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.
