    3. Hello Anna I don't see mention of the BACKHOUSE surname in your message. If there is a connection, please let us know. If not, you might try posting on LancsGen, the list for all of Lancashire (http://lists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/index/intl/ENG/LANCSGEN.html). The Barrow Archive and Local Studies Centre may hold the key to your HELME ancestors. A description of what archives they hold, what services they provide, plus contact details can be found at http://www.cumbria.gov.uk/archives/archivecentres/balsc.asp I've found three messages on the message boards which you might find interesting, as they mention both HELMEs and Furness: "Furness Families" on the England > Cumberland > Cumbria board at http://boards.ancestry.co.uk/localities.britisles.england.cul.cumbria/583/mb.ashx "Knight family Barrow in furness" on the England > Lancashire > General board at http://boards.ancestry.co.uk/localities.britisles.england.lan.general/53114.2/mb.ashx and "Henry Helm" on the England > Westmoreland > General > board at http://boards.ancestry.co.uk/localities.britisles.england.wes.general/575.1/mb.ashx If you haven't done so already, you might explore the archives of and perhaps subscribe to the HELM mailing list. Information can be found at http://lists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/index/surname/h/helm.html#HELM Hope that helps a little!
