at last finding some leads, deffinatly correct family i have all but not the last message sent would be gratfull for more help if possible had no idea of any connection to brighton thankyou les

Do your own research using freebmd
It's an easy site to use, and FH is about finding info oneself, as far as is possible.
It doesn't have much point, otherwise..........

Leslie

Leslie Report 27 Mar 2013 19:04

many thanks for your help will certainly try freebmd would still be glad of any more leads thankyou les

patchem Report 28 Mar 2013 10:52

If you look at the marriage that Reggie found

Marriages Sep 1911 (>99%)
Leeks Oliver Barnet 3a 814
Miller Annie L Barnet 3a 814
Speller Albert Barnet 3a 814
Webb Ethel Barnet 3a 814

you do not know if Ethel married Mr Leeks or Mr Speller.

So you need to look for children with combination Leeks/Webb and Speller/Webb, and hope that there are obvious births for one combination but not the other.
I would guess at children Ronald, Sidney, Edna S and Eric W, but I will leave you to find them.

Some of them may still be alive, and you could try search trees also, as there are some possible hits in trees on here.

Free bmd coverage does not go past the 1980's, and has gaps, so if you want help on later information could you specify what you have not found and we can try to help.
Or are you using genes or ancestry records already?

Leslie

Leslie Report 28 Mar 2013 18:30

many thanks to you both the only info on this leg of the family is on this thread from you both i only have acess through genes,i went back to 1715 quite easy but have been strugeling on this leg over a year will certainly try search trees would appricate any help thankyou
