Ok thank you, I haven't had a chance to look yet but a previous post had said Ann just left her mark.

Oh dear, it seems I have caused so much consternation with a simple request.

Annette - I am aware there is only one David Odell in that timeframe, but it was Ann's signature and not David's I wanted to see in this instance so will not actually help me but it was worth a try.

If it is actually a register copy that I had wanted, because of copyright I am not sure if I can copy to my computer images from Ancestry trees and that is why if there were original records online I would happily transfer it to my tree, I don't want to do anything wrong and I don't know the rules on this, they seem to vary from website to website and country to country.

avm228 - you are correct, original registers can contain so much more and in one instance when I found the original register it showed that my relative had signed with a E at the end of his name, which was not on the name on the official certificate I had purchased previously and I was able to find him from that. The registrar had entered his version of the name and not the way of the name my relative went by.
Also another time by comparing a signature of a witness to a marriage, I was able to identify a sister who I couldn't trace as she had married abroad previously, then remarried again! Once I had the first married name I could track her.

John - thanks for the location of the tree. Yes that's what I have found, so many trees have differing versions of even uncommon names that you cannot trust them.

Thank you for your help everyone.

I have an ancestry subscription but not my tree on there so I cannot attach the certificate but at least I can look at it. I don't usually look at trees as I prefer to research things myself that way I know it is as accurate as I can get it so didn't think to check that part!

Thank you John I can contact the Bedfordshire Archives but I do not have any spare money for certificates and copies (especially when I am not sure it is the correct line and need to see signatures so copies are no good) so that is why I need free online access sites.

Thank you so much, this is so helpful and has solved many queries I had on my tree as I couldn't afford to purchase the certificates but needed maiden names to check I had the correct parents names and marriages.
Initially I couldn't work out why I couldn't get the site to work when I was logging in...then realised the last time I used the site I had an email address which I stopped using 5 years ago!  :-[

The middle part looks like 'is in law dated' but my screen isn't showing it clearly.

That's the one I had found too, but I couldn't see the maiden name.
May I ask which site you used to find the mother's maiden name?

If it was me I would be purchasing Elizabeth's birth certificate, that way I would be certain of the mother's maiden name.

I have found some 5th to 8th cousins with a moderate rating to be mine and others I admin for.
I have found ancestry very accurate and am pleased with the results.

The Lighter Side / Re: Find my past - Global tree

I contacted them about this as the pop up keeps going over the search boxes!

According to them, the global tree is actually from familysearch website and I have looked at that tree and as it is a collaboration has many errors on it. It is apparently on beta mode on findmypast at the moment.

Findmypast have a lot of records on their site from familysearch, which is not made very clear that is the origin of the record. A lot of familysearch information comes from personal trees, including those on there that they have incorporated from Ancestry website, and therefore can be incorrect data.

It is not something I will be using.
