Olga, welcome to the boards.

I'm afraid you need to give us some idea of timescale if you want us to help you.

When was he born?

If you look on the freebmd site and search for BIRTHS..there are several children born in the Hartlepool district who have the same surname and mother's maiden name.

You can then check those siblings names on this GR site, looking in Search ( Top right ) to see if they feature in anyone's tree. If so you can click on their name to hopefully share information.



Olga Report 29 Mar 2013 20:50

I don't know any of their names only one and I think her name was either Olga/Kathleen


GlitterBaby Report 29 Mar 2013 20:56

Gwyn has given you the link to FreeBMD

So look for Edward born in 1914. The additional name is the mothers maiden name.

Using that information you can then find other children including Olga born in 1925

This is how Edward appears on FreeBMD

Births Jun 1914 (>99%)

GOODCHILD Edward Raybould Hartlepool 10a 317

So mothers maiden name is Raybould.


GlitterBaby Report 29 Mar 2013 21:04

It looks as if the possible parents married in 1909 and already have a daughter Mary on the 1911 census

Have you found the births after 1911 - 2 boys and 5 girls


Reggie Report 29 Mar 2013 22:36

Look for info on Freebmd, and it would be good if you could manage 'please'

We are all just paying members like yourself..............

Many thanks to those who have replied to my email if I have offended anyone then I apologise (Reggie) only it was the first time I had used this website so I wasn't sure of the procedure OLGA

Keep asking questions if you need any help.

Members try to steer you into finding information for yourself as it is much more fun to do so. Which is why you were given the link to FreeBMD and some clues as to how to use it. Give it a go and once you have tried it will be easier the next time.



Olga Report 30 Mar 2013 14:51

Many thanks Glitter Baby will give it a go and let you know how I get on


GlitterBaby Report 30 Mar 2013 14:56

Come back if any problems and I am sure members will give you more help.

But with any info posted on your thread you need to buy the certs to verify how correct it is

When you want to order certs from England and Wales use this site

You need to register first. The certs will cost £9.25.

Do not use other sites as some charge as much as £30
