Alice SLATTER - Steventon
« on: Friday 02 February 07 13:20 GMT (UK) »
My wife and I have just started researching our family tree.

Her grandmother was Alice Slatter born June 1889 in Steventon who married Moses John Prior July 1921 in Basingstoke.

We cannot find any information on Alice Slatter's ancestors.

Any information would be appreciated.
Mynott (Cambridgeshire/Suffolk), Hall (Cambridgeshire), Drake (Cambridgeshire/Derbyshire/Suffolk), Taylor (Cambridgeshire), Fletcher (Berkshire), Prior (Berkshire), Slatter (Berkshire), Gibbs (Berkshire)

Hi Chardine

Welcome to Rootschat!

The best thing to start is to interview any living relatives that might recall names, places etc to help you.  Does anyone have the family papers?

A marriage cert for the couple would give you Alice's father's name and occupation.  You can order it from the GRO once you have a reference, which can be searched for free at www.ancestry.co.uk (use the Complete records, not freebmd)

kind regards, Arranroots  ;)
