    Mayor of a town?

    Can anyone tell me how I go about finding out if true to family rumour, one of my rellies was a Mayor ?

    Do I just contact the Town Council?

        I would think that the town council would be your best bet, although it depends on how long ago it was. I have 2 mayors in my family, but they were both mayor in my lifetime, so there is no problem in confirming that story.

          Thanks everyone. It would have been between 1890-1905 I guess.

          I will compile a letter to send to the relevant councils!

          Thanks!

            HI


            My great Nans brother was a Town Mayor after 1901. I contacted the local Town Hall to where he lived and they gave me a print out from 1875 until the late 1980's listing each and everyone of them j- at no cost to me.


            So try the Town Hall of the town before the actual council.


            If no luck then try the council.
