If the births were in England, you'll find the records on freebmd

If they were born in Scotland, you'll have to buy credits for Scotlands people.

Babs is the diminutive of BARBARA

A possible birth for Thomas - but Darlington is not Midlands:

Births Jun 1916 (>99%)
Harvey Thomas Knight Darlington 10a 37

Could Babs have been her middle name:

Births Mar 1918 (>99%)
Harvey Frances B Knight Darlington 10a 37

Where and when was your grandfather born? Is this his birth:

Births Sep 1920 (>99%)
Harvey George N Knight Darlington 10a 51

Whoops - my maths is out today!


Reggie Report 12 Nov 2012 12:53


You haven't said where William and Jessie were born.....................or when.

Nor have you said where they were living in 1911

Who was your GF? When and where was he born?

We can't help you unless you share with us ALL that you know

Also....what do you mean by 'west midlands'? Which County?

If born in Scotland then you have a problem

Scotlandspeople will have the records but you can not view online births within the last 100 years.

william harvey b1842 wolverhampton m Frances Brazenall. Moves to scotland
Son William harvey b1874 Lanarkshire m Jessie Mcoll Knight
Children Wiiliam 1897 Alice 1901 SAMUEL 1902 (GF) John 1904 James Kirklans 1907 Isabella 1911 Jessie Mccoll 1914

Missing 'Babs ' Could just be a family nickname???
Thomas Harvey who emigrated 1950-1960 to Australia
All the younger family had moved from Scotland to live in and around Birmingham by the 1940

Thanks Glitterbabe was gettting frustrated wasting credits when no image was available-that explains it grrrrr
