Hi Teresa. Did you get my e-mail? I know you don't have time to turn around, but if you do get time could you look up for FREDERICK ROBINSON his wife ELIZABETH and their daughter Lilian (my grandmother), all I know about them is Frederick was a coachman (domestic) Lilian was born 1898/1899. That I got from her marriage certificate the place of Lilian's marriage was Bromley count of Kent, and her father was put down as deceased. she had my father in 1920 Stockwell London, and his sister in 1921 Romford, England. I do hope you can help me as I have tried the 1901 site, the BMD and the IGI site, but there are so many Robinsons. I have checked out quite a few over time with no luck, but I think it would take a life time to go through them all. Valerie

Would you look for Thomas William Page, born 1848 in Norwich, Norfolk and also Jane Spooner, born 1850 in Thurton, Norfolk. If you do find anything, would it be possible to do a sibling search at the same time? Many thanks.

Hello Teresa You are really SO good doing all these look-ups for people. I have found an entry on the LDS site for an ancestor's birth in Naples, Italy in 1844. Would your discs be able to give me any more information? Thankyou in advance

Hi Valerie; Sorry it took so long to answer. I had 35 emails yesterday, plus the ones here. Anyway, there are hundreds of Frederick Robinsons, none in Kent for that timeframe though. Of course, even though Lilian was married there it doesn't mean that is where she was born. No sign of any births with Frederick and Elizabeth as parents. Do you have any idea where Frederick may have been born?

Hi Sandra; The only Thomas William Page in that time period is born in Brighton Sussex 1846.The only Jane Spooners are in Suffolk in 1847 and 1848. The only Norfolk marriage for Jane Spooner is in 1847, where it states that wife was previously married. No marriage for william Thomas Page in norfolk . Some Williams but if he is supposed to be married to Spooner--no. Two William Thaomas Page marriages-1 inStaff 1865, 1 in Lincs 1889

Hi Hayley; VRI is the British Vital Records Index. It has births and marriages from 1500's to 1906. More records for some counties than others as it is not complete.
