My name is Jason Bowers and I live in Arley, Nr Kidderminster, England. I have been trying to find information about my family tree. My Mothers side have been doing this since 1990 and have gathered an huge amount of information, so I have been trying to do the same for my fathers side.
One other reason for doing this is that my great grandfathers -brother is supposidly Leutenant Henry Robertson Bowers - Birdie Bowers who went with Robert Falcon Scott on the Terra Nova expidition to the pole in 1910 - 1913 and I have been trying to confirm this. I have seen many photo's of Henry and I can confirm a distinct resemblene as I have the Bowers family nose (hence the nickname 'Birdie' due to his long defined nose).
I would welcome any information at all, I will but below information that may help.
Me: Jason Harold William Bowers.
My Father: Barrie Bowers.
Born 01.11.1938 Salford, Manchester. Died 19.09.2002.
My Grandfather: Harold Bowers.
Born 1919 Manchester. Died 1995.
I know its a little week but I have only just started this project and this seems like the ideal site.
