Tip for finding Births after 1911

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Michele Report 22 Sep 2004 19:22

Hi All, While searching the GRO records in person I search for any births listed from September Quarter 1911 of any surnames I'm researching where the mothers maiden name and the area is known. I've found loads of my grandparents cousins this way and when I've sent for the certs so far they have been correct. Easier if you have unusual names on both sides. Just a tip but hope it helps others Happy Hunting Michele
