hi all,
does anyone know of a site that lets you find the children in the marriage like the old lds site when you put in the parents names it brought up all the children in that marriage? also i have been searching for my ggrandparents but am confused!!! as to how do i know who the right person is when all i have is his name and dob and place of birth, when there are 6 people born with the same name within a year of each other and all born in the same place? i hope all of this makes sense.
thanks
ps would be very gratefull for some help.

As long as the children were baptised the LDS site still works the same as it always did.
Do you want to give us some names and dates and we may be able to help

Who did Thomas marry?
Have you seen a copy of his marriage certificate which hopefully names his father and the occupation of both of them

We really do need to now who he married or the names of his children. Hughes is such a common name in Liverpool it would be like looking for a needle in a haystack.

I see what you mean, there are quite a few on the 1871 census born at that time in Liverpool.

If he's a direct ancestor which child do you descend from? Much easier to work back from there.
