Re: Organ of Berkeley & North Nibley (Gloucestershire)

Hi Andrew.

You said that you have a seconed book comming out next year on the Organ family. Please can you tell me when the first one come out and where I can get a copy from? I am still trying to find photographs on my grandparents, Conrad and Lilian Organ, both died of T.B. when my mother was a baby. She has never seen what they looked like and she is getting on in age now. Have you ever come across Organ's who have moved over a period of a hundred years from Minsterworth to Randwick to Stonehouse and Upton St. Leonards and finally Gloucester.

Sorry it's so long.

Take Care.

Dear Andrew,
I have traced my family tree to a Richard Organ born in 1511 in Berkeley, Glouc. Does the book that you have published include this man or could i be an ancestor of those mentioned in your book? If i can help you in any way, let me know.

Hi Sheridan

Same as me as I have traced the Organ lineage back to 1511 when Richard Organ of Breadstone was born. Also I have some earlier references prior to that year. Yes my second book mentions this man. I think you are descended from Elias & Elizabeth Organ who emigrated to NSW. Am I right? I am descended from Elias' uncle John Organ & Martha Workman. The book now contains over 180 pages to date covering 23 chapters (1 to 11 plus suffixes e.g. 5a, 7d, 8a etc for world-wide branches. The NSW branches are featured in chapter 8a. Please use my email address for your reply. We can then share information. Thank you for contacting me. Very much looking forward to hearing from you.
