I only have access to incoming passengers to U.K. I will have a good look tomorrow night.
It is possible they left the country, and although you wrote off the Ireland option, it could still be a possiblity.
I will see what i can find, tomorrow night and on a fresh brain!

Thank you Michelle - I gathered that you would have to post on my original thread - thought if I gave you the thread number I would stay within guidelines - at this stage I think that going abroad can be the only option left - I have checked everywhere I can think of - and as you saw it appears this really is a brick wall
Thanks for response - do you have access to emigration records Thank you Irene

Sorry, I can't help you on this thread as i don't want to upset any Genes Reunited members by helping on here while they have worked on the other thread.

I will look at the thread you have posted and see if i can find anything. If i can see anything i will post on there.
Have you thought of the possibilty that they left the country?

Hi Michelle

Thanks for offering - it is very kind of you to give your time

Would you like to look at my thread http://www.genesreunited.co.uk/boards.asp?wci=thread&tk=1226268

I just do not understand how they could have both disappeared

I have confirmed that Fred Turner born Stafford is not him - checked with Stafford parish records - -

Thank you

Hi Michelle

Ref: Minnie Aston

Sorry I haven't been back intouch but I have been out all day today, I have just got in and got your messages.

Thank you for all the hard work you've been putting in. I will check this out with my mam and her brother to see if any of it rings bells. I've got a feeling that she had a sister, Charlotte, but i'm not sure.

Thanks again, I will be back intouch.

Hi Michelle

Please could you help me find a lady called Minnie Aston? I have found her on the 1911 Census married to a man call Henry Pluse Robson, but I can't find her on any Census earlier. I was trying to find the names of her parents and any brothers and sisters. I think she was born 31/05/1877 in Newbottle, Durham. This is my mam's grandmother and she seems to remember something about Morecomb.

Thank you for any help you can give.

Regards.
