Assuming you're working backwards, you might have to buy a known child's BC, then Amos' MC to find the name of his father :-(

Thank you DET very much appreciated.

I am doing this for my friend, a present of her family tree for her birthday in October! She has NO information at all, so I am working very much in the dark!

However, I shall treat every bit of info with caution and double check, as we all do.

Thanks again.

As you can tell from the inset map, Mountsorrel Quarry was 300m away over my left shoulder.
I think there was a Hosiery Factory just off frame to the left, level with the red brick house.
Go to http://www.old-maps.co.uk/index.html and input the coords 458200,314700 then try the 1903 map


There is a disconnect between 1871 and 1881 for both Amos's and you really need your Amos's m.cert to see if his dad was Wm or Jos. Jos's son is aged 5/15,
and Wm's is aged 4/13 in 1961/71. Millie's hubby is aged 25/35/45/55, and Eliza's hubby is aged 23/32/43/53 in 1881-1911. My guess is Wm is Eliza's pa-in-law, but I'ld like to see it confirmed.

Hello mgnv! Thank you for your input. The Amos I am researching is married to Millicent.

You are quite right, I will need to see a few certificates to make certain.

I have written to a few people on here, and a couple have been very helpful, but a few have not opened the envelope. Perhaps they are not at home, or are not on Genes any more.

I shall indeed look at the links you have mentioned.

Thank you very much for your time.
