I have just found said Jan and have sent her/him a message. I did try to search the 1911 when I clicked on it, it just brought up a page telling me what I would find on the page. Oh bring back the old site I know my way round it a bit better. Thanks all


jax Report 12 Sep 2013 20:37

There is someone called Jan who also has her in her/his tree, are you in contact?


jax Report 12 Sep 2013 20:33

If she died after 1969 then her date of birth should be on her death maybe you should get her birth cert

I think her father was call John and he was deceased at time of marrage.


Looby Report 12 Sep 2013 20:12

The marriage is right and she was 48 and a spinster when she married so I worked out her birth to 1908 so this birth could be right. Thanks very much.


jax Report 12 Sep 2013 19:16
