Hi Jess Thanks for your kind offer - can you work your magic for me, please? I found a family on 1871, only to lose them in subsequent years. I've tried every possible trick I can think of, but no luck. Here they are in 1871: Kate Ramsey abt 1833 Bethnal Green, Middlesex, England Wife Bethnal Green London George Ramsey abt 1835 Bethnal Green, Middlesex, England Head Bethnal Green London Kate Bamsey abt 1860 Bethnal Green, Middlesex, England Daughter Bethnal Green London John Bamsey abt 1864 Bethnal Green, Middlesex, England Son Bethnal Green London The Kates are also known as Catherines, and the surname should be Ramsey. Fingers crossed! Debbie

Pauline Report 30 Sep 2005 11:39

Jess, First, thanks for the info on Robert, as you can probably guess I'm fairly new to doing research, but do you think son means stepson, i.e. the wife' s child considering the surname difference? As to Elizabeth, to be honest I was holding out some hope of a clue if a family was listed (similar christian names to children, grandchildren etc), but no wasn't hoping to confirm which was wife this way, just clue-gathering. Anyway, thanks once again. Pauline
