I almost feel I shouldn't be asking for more help after you have all been so good in supplying me with so much information, but I am intriqued to know how you come back with all this data so quickly. I have spent the last three afternoons working on Edward England to try to get a lead but when I request to view it shows a person not in the right age group at death, or something similar, and I have wasted some more of my credits. It seems to cost a fortune. Am I doing something wrong, advice please. Regards Sheba.

Most of us use Find My Past or Ancestry to search records. These are sites you have to pay an anual sub to

I guess the speed is down to experience.

If you want help with finding anything else just shout

It sounds as though you're using GR...............not the best place for research.

If you'd care to give more info about Edward, someone will help you.........
