In asking you (and by default, GR members) to help, and not giving you accurate info, your friend is being rather unfair.

So far, also, you have provided no location info for the man.......other than his place of marriage

Reggie

Reggie Report 20 Dec 2012 15:38

In that case.........look for birth on freebmd

Or tell your friend to buy the marriage cert............for factual info

Stephen/Steven is vastly different from Samuel

She said he definetley died before 1995. She has just phoned a family member and now confirmed that Stephen (or Steven) was his middle name.

Can you get your friend to confirm that she is 100% sure that George's second name was actually SAMUEL?

She basically wanted to do her family tree. We started on her mothers side but got stuck on her grandparents straight away. We looked on Hannah's birth certificate and the mothers maiden name is Roberts but Jones and Roberts are quite common.
She believed he died when around 1988/1989 shes not 100% sure as she was quite young.

Thank you this Reggie

Reggie Report 20 Dec 2012 15:12

There are countless Jones/Roberts births in Holyhead district.

Your friend needs to buy Hannah's birth cert......for facts about the names of her parents

The names are far too common for researching without as much info as possible

Try looking for George's birth on freebmd..............

Is this the right HANNAH?

Births Dec 1915 (>99%)
Jones Hannah G Roberts Holyhead 11b 748

It would have been helpful if you'd given the location.........

Reggie

Reggie Report 20 Dec 2012 15:08

What does your friend want to know?

Does she know when her grandfather died?

You say you know Hannah's mother's maiden name........have you looked for a marriage for the parents?

This is my friends tree i am trying to help her do - she believed her grandfather was born in 1905 but this must be a mistake. I don't have any specfic questions hense why i ask for any information.
Thank you for the death record.

Asking for 'any info' isn't helpful......much better to ask a specific question

Nadine

Nadine Report 20 Dec 2012 14:24

Hannah's mother's maiden name was Roberts and possibly had a sister called Grace b1913?

Nadine

Nadine Report 20 Dec 2012 14:20

Im looking for any information on George Samuel Wood b 1905 and Hannah Grace Jones b 1915 in Wales.
They married in 1948 in Amersham in Buckinghamshire and had a daughter Ann.


Any information would be much appreciated,
