Hello Nerisa,

I received most of my information on our branch of the family through the birth records obtained from the public records office in London during a visit to UK some years ago. I had a bit of a leg up as I knew the details of his basic information - birthday, where born, when he arrived in Canada etc. There's a fair bit of information to be had about the family name if you're ever in the Sittingbourne or Ramsgate area of Kent as well. What I found most interesting was that most Highsteds still live within a short distance of the farm that we took our name from. There's a very few of us in Canada but there's a larger pocket in New Zealand and Australia - specially NZ. Best regards - David Highsted
