I have an ancestor who was born in 'America' in 1874 ish. His family seem to travel across the atlantic Bricklaying/labourering. and one son was 'born in the USA' in 1874 but in UK census' is list as 'born in America british subject). I cannot find any UK Registration for him and dont know how to find any USA registration. Has anyone anything similar and/or any advice?? BN
