You need to compare to other info that you have. Can the person be found on a census with parents and/or siblings?

Andrew

I have had quiet a lot of probs finding info on this part of my family the only info I can find is on FreeReg except for his birth which I found on Family search the birth I am after is for James Jackson he married in 1811 so I have looked for birth from1770 to 1795 I have found 2 one in 1778 and the other in 1784 both in Dudley Worcestershire, The 2 I found have perants Edward and Sarah and Thomas and Hannah the only link I have is That James had a daughter Sarah but not sure if that is a strong enough link, I have not found him on a census i do know he was a Glazier

Thank you

Where and when was his daughter born Mary?
Might help to see her on a census if you have one - I know you have her info but it can help us get a handle on things sometimes!

I have just found a death for a James jackson in 1842 age 66 but not sure if he's mine but have sent for cert, that would make him born 1776 so still not sure if he's 1 of the births i have found for 1778 or 1784 but still cannot find him on 1841 census


Regards

Could you say who Sarah married so we can see her in 1851?
Also the name of James's wife.
Thanks.
