Yippee!!!! I found Henry on 1871
« on: Tuesday 09 March 04 14:44 GMT (UK) »
All the certification I had on grandfather Henry JAMES indicated his birth place as LONDON...such a small town.
The ages varied so I was not sure of the year.  The BMD index gave me about 20 possibles, which I had recently narrowed down to 6, and I was ready to request a general search from PRO.

Ancestry recently gave me 1871 for London and Middlesex, and BINGO.   There he was, with Mum, Dad and brother, age 2, born LAMBETH,SURREY.

The index has only 1 birth for Lambeth, so I have now been able to order his birth certificate.

HAPPY DANCING HERE
