I am trying to do my husbands family tree. His grandfather Robert was born in holbeach and lived in boston (lincs). I have found on the 1901 census that there was a kitchen family in algakirk. I am ( at this time) presuming this may be his family.
within this family was 6 siblings, Bertie, Henry, Stanley.Ada, Alfred and Rose. Any info would be appreciated.

Don't ever on facts.

Start with your husband.............and work back

In which year do you think his grandfather was born?

Failing that..............when/where did he die? Who did he marry?

Is the grandfather one of these?

Many thanks
