Hi
just to say ive asked about his person before,,, but I just wondered if someone could help me or how I go about finding out children that got sent to barnardo's
I found out tonight that sarah the person im trying to find out about, she had one daughter brn 1910 Lancaster and another child Bernard 1919 Salford, but we think she had a few more between, these two they told her that she couldn't hand any more children into care she had too look after Bernard...Bernard didn't have a good child hood apparently, and he never got told about the other siblings... so its a sad story and loved to find out how I go about it.... also sarah was born in a workhouse..thats probably why I couldn't find her... and why no father was mentioned on her marriage cert... I was also told she liked being called sally!!...would be a different name for sarah... or has she changed her name...
be grateful if someone could help if you can
many thanks :-) :-)

A surname would help .

Sarah's birth should have been registered no matter where she was born or the circumstances of her birth. If you know the birth area ( from census ? ) it would be worth looking for a baptism, as many workhouse inmates were encouraged to have their children baptised.
Sometimes workhouses were the only form of local 'hospital' so women might be admitted just for the delivery and a recovery period.
Maybe Sarah was born with a different birth surname to that seen in a census.

May Sarah's are known as Sally, but each of these names might be a given name in it's own right.

Would you like to give a few details of a link to your previous thread and people will try to help.

You should have added your question to the end of your other thread to save duplication of research.

The reason I asked who Sarah was is because you said it was Shirley Timlin.
