i think i understand what you wrote,sorry im not sure what to do as alltho ive had membership for a while im not used to this part...
is there anyway someone could help find georges parents


jax Report 16 Feb 2011 02:35

It is hard to find Georges parents when I cannot find George

I see there is an Emily Prescott as a witness wonder if she is a sister?



jax Report 16 Feb 2011 02:38

It says on that census that Henry was born in Islington not seeing one at the moment I'm affraid



SherbitShandy Report 16 Feb 2011 02:41

i have no idea if she was a sister or not, i was adopted as my mother died shortly after my birth and Leonard my dad gave me my sister and 1 brother away so my maternal grandparents brought me up in scotland
if i could find george then i imagine i could try find out where to buy a birth for george


SherbitShandy Report 16 Feb 2011 02:43

my father Leonard i dont know where he lived in london after he left us but i found his death but no mention of a wife on it, but do know he married as i had a visit from a stepbrother of who he said had 7 siblings....most undesirable lot lol

This is the only one I've seen that even looks close! I wonder if "George" was a bit of a cover-up??

So it looks like henry could well be illigitamate and George could be made up to save face?



MaureeninNY Report 16 Feb 2011 02:51

Possible. I certainly don't see a George the butcher around anywhere!!!



SherbitShandy Report 16 Feb 2011 02:53

sorry lost ye there what do you mean....i realise what illigitamate means but what do ye mean George made up? sorry for being a bit ignorant


SherbitShandy Report 16 Feb 2011 02:55

does that mean thats where ma roots end?


jax Report 16 Feb 2011 02:55
