Start by looking at freebmd and getting accurate info for the marriage year

Use the same site to research the legitimate children

Way to go Reggie!!! Thanks for that. Well above and beyond the call of duty there. The Freebmd sounds good. Easy to use? I will check it out when I get some time.
Am I only able to get legitimate birth details from it? My dad and his two "full" brothers were all illegitimate to him.
I appreciate your help and the timely way you went about it. If you don't mind me asking, why do you put the effort in when you have no vested interested? I appreciate the effort nonetheless.

Regards
Trev

Reggie Report 30 Sep 2012 12:53

freebmd is easy to use......covers from 1837 to approx 1950.........for England/Wales

Illegitimate births are, of course, registered, but not usually with any reference to the father, so finding them can be a problem, unless you know the maiden name(s) of the mother(s).

As for why I do it...........as you get familiar with GR, you will find that a lot of the members put in time and effort to help others.

Basically, we enjoy it.....and especially so when the people we help are appreciative

Well, Reggie, I really do appreciate it. I am a believer in giving something back, so I will determine that I will do something like this, when I get a bit more experience at it. At the moment, I feel that I have little to offer. I am in Australia, and I assume you are in the UK. If we lived a bit closer, I would buy you a pint. I will post something to let you know how I get on.
Cheers Reggie, I appreciate your help.
