wow - i didnt expect such a response - thank you to all!!

Hi Rose,

Alfred's sons name was Albert Herbert Wood who was born in 1870? i have found him and his family in the 1901 census as being born in Ilkeston, Derbys.

hi Christine,

Where did you find all this information? This has got to be the one!! Alfred's son ended up living in Cleethorpes so I assumed that Alfred must have originated from there. Then i found the Birmingham address and searched there. I live in Nottingham, not far from Ilkeston, Christine. So I have gone full circle and this line of my family were nearer to me now than I ever imagined. Thank you so much for the help. What is now puzzling me is why - inbetween the census' he gave his address at his sons wedding as Easy Row Birmingham? He cannot have upped and moved in between with all those children? Oh - of course, as a commercial traveller you would have to put where you were living [even if only temporary] at the time of the census!! [the penny has just dropped!] It doesnt make life easy for us when trying to trace them, does it!

Hi Jim,

Thank you for the help - you have found what must be the correct one as did Rose and Christine. You are all such experts - and I am very new at this. The information you have found in the 1901 census has found another daughter of Alfred and another relative for me.

Thanks for also supplying a date of death - my Grandfather would have only been 4 years old when he died - at only 63. I wonder if he sampled too many of his supplies!!?

Alfred's son went to live in Cleethorpes and his grandson, my grandfather, came back to Nottingham and actually lived in Basford where Alfred died.

Maybe his son also being an Alfred B Wood confused me. I suppose the next step is to find his date of marriage and order his marriage certificate. I will then have HIS father details and maybe go back another generation!

Hi Rose, Christine and Jim,

I searched the census' you have found him under [cos i thought that i had been totally stupid - and still couldnt find him. However, I have just discovered that the reason i couldnt find him anywhere was because i had been searching under Derbys [which is the county that Ilkeston is in now] - however in 1891 and 1901 it comes under Basford, which is a district of Notts!!

i have now found him for myself on both the census' you have copied to me. i must check out on the internet about county boundaries moving over the years. i am sure that this will help me in my work.

thanks so much again!!

Elaine
