Hi Sally, WOW!!!! What a fantastic offer. I am searching for info about my maternal family. The following is what i have already, i hope you can understand it all, and can help me. I am trying to find out if my gx3 grandfather WILLIAM HAILWOOD 1842 was married twice, as the 1881 and 1901 census is conflicting over the age of his wife, in both cases she is called MARY 1861. (1881 CENSUS SHE IS 35 AND IN 1901 CENSUS SHE IS 40) The family are from WEST DERBY LIVERPOOL. Also if poosible could you find out the names of WILLIAM HAILWOODS PARENTS from an earlier census?? I know i'm being greedy, but would it be possible to find out from the 1901 census any facts about my paternal g/parents THOMAS FREDERICK POVEY 1896( i need details of his parents if possible) and his wife ELIZABETH JANE POVEY nee FLETCHER 1896. Born Liverpool. Her parents were called ELIZA FLETCHER 1875 and WILLIAM FLETCHER 1875. Olease forgive me for asking so much of you, and any info you can get me, however little will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your wonderful offer. Take care Jean
