Frances Davies

Frances Davies Report 12 Nov 2011 18:39

ihave replied to person with margaret in no reply


patchem Report 12 Nov 2011 18:55

Have you entered them all into your tree so descendants can contact you, and have you looked to see if anyone else has them in their trees?
e.g.Garfield Davies, 1924?
Have you got birth certificates, or accurate dates of birth?

Frances Davies

Frances Davies Report 23 Nov 2011 20:35

have got birth certificates for all family


patchem Report 23 Nov 2011 21:23

If you have accurate dates of birth we can find out if anyone has died up to 2005. This might seem like a strange way of doing things, but the informant on the death certificate could be a wife/husband or child, which could help in tracing any marriage etc. With a surname like Davies you need all the help you can get.
Do you want to give one or two dates of birth so we can see if any information turns up?
