Pearl Foster Author Page

Pearl Foster was born in London and moved to Bristol for teacher-training and to complete a degree in Economics and Sociology. Her career in education was followed by ten years as a registrar of births, marriages and deaths.

She has pursued a lifelong interest in family history research - in particular a branch of the Lara and Furtado families who escaped the barbarities of the Portuguese inquisition and fled to England.

Pearl is married, has two children, is happily retired and will be pleased to hear from anyone tracing similar lines.The author can be contacted at
