Hi,
New too this site only joined today and agree researching isn't always easy as I have just found out. I have been pottering along quite nicely tracing my paternal surname and have hit a wall and don't know how to go about tracing it further. The problem is I have traced the line back to the 1841 census and just recieved the marriage certificate for my relation but the fathers surname is different to that of my ancestor, any suggestions on how to tackle this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Dee

Welcome to Rootschat - you'll find everyone on here very helpful and very knowledgeable as well. If they can't help they often know who can!

Post all the details on the relevant county board and I'm sure you'll soon get an answer.

Good luck

Jan

I am going to suggest that this isn't the best place for newcomers to post their queries - please try the Beginners board if you aren't sure where to post your new thread.

I'll lock this now, so that new requests don't get overlooked.

Kind regards, Arranroots  ;)
