Records after the 1911 Census

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

I have an ancestor born a few months after the 1911 census was taken so I am basically wondering, are there any free accessible records that are available after 1911?

Without knowing the country you mean - but assuming! - do you already know about Freebmd - birth, marriage and death indexes for England/Wales:

After this it's electoral registers - for London you can search online by name (not free!) but in the vast majority of areas you need an address. This has to be searched in person where archives are kept, normally at the nearest main library. Even then you can only see adults of voting age, obviously.

People on here have various subs so if you are stuck I am sure we will try to help.

Well if you have his birth ref the it will show his mothers maiden name . you can then looked for siblings with the same surname combination. You can also look for the parents marriage also on FreeBMD. If you dont have census access you can ask for a look up.
