I looked for years for my grandfather with his family on the 1891 Census.

I finally put a query up on GR ....................... and a very nice member found them ...................

Harry Silufeld .................... instead of Schofield :-D

Surname : Pollock

I had quite an unusual surname before I married and always had to spell it to people over the phone. Marrying a Bell, I thought that would solve the problem - No! I thought I had a very clear telephone voice and at work always answered with my full name but numerous correspondence came addressed to Miss Campbell!
