Hi Steph welcome to the boards

Where were they from and when?

Have you looked for the parents in the search trees?

If these births were before the late 1950s have you tried freebmd? (unless they were not born England or Wales)

Do you mean William Halliday Kennedy 1887 birkenhead married Margaret A Moore 1910 Birkenhead?? If so, there are children.

To the first one, I don't know what you me by searched the parents in search trees? (sorry I'm a beginner).
To the second, I believe William Halliday Kennedy was born in 1883/4, (that is according to his age on census 1901) but he did marry Margaret in 1910 in Birkenhead so there must be a bit of a crossed wire somewhere. How did you find the 1887 and how do you know there was definitely children?
Thank you

You can look for births by using the father and mother's surnames.

As you have been a member since 2006 I would have thought you had been using the site in some way?

If you go to the dark green bar top of screen "Search trees" click on that and put the persons name adn year of birth you may find other members who have this family in their tree...not advisable to put in the middle name though

Thank you, the first list you have put on looks promising, where did you get that from? I think my Dad's great grandfather married an Ellen. I joined in 2006 to look for a friends family, came back on in 2009 and found my dad's sisters but that was very easy with the info we had, and I haven't been on since. Sorry, yes I have been searching trees and records for days and I have names coming up all over the place but no certainties that they are definitely the right people. Just need a bit of a help.
Also, thank you Rose

To find children of any marriage (up to around 1950) just look on freebmd

http://www.freebmd.org.uk/

The census's I have provided are from Find my past.

I do not know what 1901 census you have found but it seems to be the wrong one going by his birth registration in 1888

You have now been given the link to freebmd 3 times so give it a go see how you get on

Steph Report 12 Jun 2012 22:13

I believe Margaret was a packer in soap works, were have you found these records? on this site?

Steph

Steph Report 12 Jun 2012 22:13

Oh I sent that at the same time as you told me. Thank you

They will be on this site aswell but I do not subscribe to the records on here

Steph

Steph Report 12 Jun 2012 22:18

I haven't got enough credits or money to look at those records, this is going to sound really cheeky but if I messaged you my email address wouldd you be able to send it?
Don't worry if not, you have been a big help.
