I'm not sure where to list this query, so here goes in the hope that someone out there may have an idea of where to go next!!
I have a relation in my tree (John William Burgon - Dean of Chichester.) Fortunately for me he has written quite extensively and was a public figure, so I have been able to find out quite a lot about (one side) of the family.(mothers side) However some of the family on his fathers, fathers side remain a bit of a mystery.
During my own research I found he wrote (amongst other things) a personal research document which he called "Parentalia" which was a genealogy document(s). I have not so far been able to find a copy of it.
Any ideas anyone? It's so frustrating to know that this collection of my families past exsists somewhere out there and not be able to find it.
PS I live in Australia, so person visits to Archives etc are out of the question - on-line resources would be good.
