Re: 8 Reasons for not finding
In Response To: 8 Reasons for not finding ()
I agree, I have searched and searched for my grandfather's sister and have yet to find her in any census. I did find a marriage record for her last marriage and was I surprised to find her listed as the midwife on my brother's birth certificate. Same with my grandfather's father, can not find him on any census, but I was able to located his and my great grand mother's marriage record. The spelling of the names were off but it was them in a county I was not expecting to find then in.
Also I was able to pinpoint the year of my cousin's three sisters by viewing an online genealogy site that had listing of old newspapers for that area.
