hit a brick wall
« on: Friday 21 April 17 03:51 BST (UK) »
I have decided recently to look in family history and found out my granddads dad died when he was six years old and cant remember him and has n photos my uncle did some research asking granddads older brother questions and got told to leave it alone it will open up a whole can of worms and to stop asking questions granddad don't know why this was they have passed and his only older sister can remember him vaguely but no photos or nothing bout his past so I took over to see what I could find out and up to yet I know his dad was called Charles Benjamin born in Georgetown British Guiana 28/12/1890 and came to UK between 1914-1918 was a stow apparently that got caught over half way on journey so was allowed to UK I know nothing about his mother but his father was called Baris Benjamin and was a cooper. he also had a sister but there is two stories 1) she made it to UK after Charles with children not sure if illegal or not 2) she apparently died at sea with her children when ship capsized no names are known for the children or his sister I would like to be able to get birth certificate of his dad so he has something as struggling with all other links and I have messaged a genealogist to find any picture or birth certificate as this would make my granddads so happy and have been quoted over 1200. other than personally go out to Guiana to search records out there I think I might be done.
