There was once a political party that took a very great interest in family history. The Nazi party required everybody to prove that their parents and grandparents were not jewish. Hitler was so keen to obscure his own jewish roots that he had the village of his birth turned into an artillery range - so any gravestones were blown to smithereens!

Is anybody researching Harry FARAGE b Dec 1890 Q Epsom and Gladys V SCHROD b Mar 1898 Q Bromley. They appear to have married but have no details of children due to 100 year rule and no idea of antecedents due to the fact I am having a rest from genealogy this year :-D

John ........

I would suggest looking at

All marriages and birth (and deaths, of course) for anyone born in the UK between July1 1837 and (approx) 1955/1960 should be on there ................... if registered, of course :-D

As long as such events took place in England or Wales, there is no 100 year rule.

That site is free to use,

Sylvia :-D :-D Was trying to be diplomatic. Not easy for me. Their son was a good guy who appears to have been a JP and won an academy award. Grandson an outstanding banker ;-)

Well, I was going to ask if you'd used the "search all trees" facility ;-)
