Wow! We've been reading through this board for a few days now, and had already seen how helpful everyone is, but to get two replies to our first message within a matter of minutes was wonderful. Thanks again. Perhaps someone could help us with part of the same query. Does anyone know a way to look for births with just the mothers maiden name or do we need to know the fathers name too? We just know that someone will know the answer!! Thanks Tony and Eleanor
