The Client had conducted a large amount of research on their family tree themselves, but also wished to find answers, where possible, about the life of their paternal Grandparents. For the Grandfather the only information available appeared on their Father’s birth certificate.
All the research provided by the Client was put into a family tree, adding verification sources and expanding the tree with new members of the family as they arose. Once this was done, the focus turned to the Grandmother and her life. Evidence was available for the early and latter parts of her life but not the middle. It is during this period of time that two children were born to two different Fathers’, one of whom was the Client’s Grandfather. Extensive research followed looking at birth, marriage and death records, occupational and business records linked to both Father’s, local history for the areas where the children were born. Visiting record offices as and when necessary. Census information was not immediately applicable in this case as the children’s births were after 1911.
Research success has been limited but research continues to piece together the life of the Grandmother and the identity of the Grandfather and his family.
