Can't find a marriage of Archiebold/Archibald Nelson and Gertrude.


lisaking Report 7 Apr 2009 17:38

thanx misty
its a real mystery the only charles edward i could find was dob 1889 im beginning to wonder wether he changed his birth cert dob
story goes he went looking for work ended up in sheffield married winnie and before they got married winnie alted his name and put atkinson on the end of it reads charles edward nelson atkinson
maybe he was older than what he said we were always made to belive lucy was younger i really hope i can get to the bottom of it all


lisaking Report 7 Apr 2009 17:46

i couldnt find any connection at all to archibold and gertrude at all not in any cences but did find an archibold dob 1866 but married to a catherine maybe it was an affair im at my wits end im doing all this for my mother really wanted it to be streight forward find lost relations ect
