I'm looking into my family history and found your site while searching Google for info about the area. My granddad was born and brought up in West Rainton, my nan in West Hartlepool - they moved to London in the mid-1930 where my parents were born but I'm from Northamptonshire, now in Bedfordshire.

My grandparents died when I was young but always knew they were from the Durham area - only now, looking into the family history am I finding out that all sides of the family go far back in the region and I'm finding generations of miners, innkeepers, labourers and mariners.

I'm hoping I might be able to tap into some local knowledge on this site - I'll post questions as they come up - it'd be great to hear from anyone that can help!
