Reggie, I do have to aplogise for the last memo I sent you. I have since checked with my eldest sister who is 85 and she confirms that we did in fact have an aunt catherine. I did not know this. Thats something else i know now.

As i said I am new to GR but I have had some contact with other members and found a 4th cousin. No doubt as i get used to using the site things will be easier for me.

Thank you once again for all your help. I really do appreciate it.

Many thanks

Valerie

Hi Reggie. Thank you for your E Mail. I do not think we have the same family of Henman's. My mothers brothers and sisters were called Lily, Freddie, May, Alice and Arthur. We do not have a Catherine in our tree.

Kind regards

Valerie

Try looking for Catherine's marriage (if there was one) and then tell us her married name, so that we can look for a death

There is so much you can do yourself........

If the above census records ARE for you parents and their families, you will now be able to research their siblings on freebmd, looking for possible marriages, then, once you know they are for the right peoople, using the same site to look for any offspring.

So, when were your parents born?

Have you found their birth registraions?

If so, you should be able to trace the births of their siblings - if there were any.

Perhaps you don't realise that if you give some details, people will try to help you.......

Are you Valerie J, birth registered in Bridgwater?

Do you have older siblings born in Stepney?
