Where do I Look

Tonymedic Report 9 Apr 2013 12:04

I am trying to find a child that was born and died between the census returns of 1901 and 1911.

According to the 1911 census Sarah Emma Flint (nee Burns) had 3 children 2 living 1 died.. The 2 living were Bernard Austin born 1895 and Dorothy Annie born 1897. Father William born 1868

1901 they were living in York, 1911 living in Doncaster can not find birth and death of a child in either place during those 10 years.

Where else can I look for the name?

Tony :-(

Cannot find a corresponding birth for this little girl. If she died soon after birth, maybe it wasn't registered:

Deaths Jun 1899 (>99%)
FLINT Ida Rose 0 York 9d 31

If you are restricting your search to the period between censuses, you may be looking in the wrong time-scale...........

I have found 1 girl that was born in York and died in 1899 aged 0 name Ida Rose will try and find more on her and those born in Doncaster



Reggie Report 9 Apr 2013 15:34

The only way to find 'more' is to purchase certs


Traciey Report 9 Apr 2013 15:35

I've had this type of search within my own tree too and its a nightmare, my x2 grt grandmother states in 1911 Census that she had 10 children, 6 survived. I could only find 7 children then I found another two but under different spellings, I still have one child to find but sometimes I wonder if she forgot how many children she actually had, although my nana assured me her grandmother had 10 children. My families name is Storie and I found children under Story,Storry,Storrie & Sterry.
