My name is Andy Hooley from Tottington, Bury, Lancs.
Have been into genealogy for about 18 months now and love every minute of
it. My family, on my fathers side, have mainly come from the Manchester
area Openshaw, Gorton & Droylsden although some have moved out of
Lancashire as times goes backwards.
My main aim is tracing my Hooley line have have got back to 1820's in
Droylsden and if my assumptions are correct c1790 Derbyshire.
I also host the Lancashire Surname Interests at
This week I have also made contact with my first internet cousion (not yet
sure how many times removed) and it feels magic.
Look forward to a happy mailing session,
