Ann Roberts
« on: Wednesday 23 May 18 03:38 BST (UK) »
Afternoon all, I am having no luck in finding a Ann Roberts who was born/baptised around 1774 and later married Nathaniel Porter in 1795 Edgbaston. At present searching the web for all Ann Roberts baptisms around that time, I have her burial Certificate and Nathaniel Porter's Burial Certificate, as I have been searching for my ancestors since 2005 at least, I appear to be going around in circles, I have subscriptions with the well known web pages. Perhaps I need to focus on their children more, Nathaniel, Caroline, even posting their names on the board didn't help, none of them replied to my enquiry in finding their parents Records. :'( :'( Any suggestions are always appreciated from this great message board. :-[ :-[

Regards,
Janet :-\

Good Morning purlin, I can't get into Family Search anymore as they require a email address and password now, I tried yesterday and no luck. I have found Caroline Porter records on Ancestry, her marriage to Edward Thomas he was a widower when he married her on the 8/4/1823. I also tried to make contact with their family tree on Ancestry which would mean updating my subscription a lot more to view this. :'( :'(. Thanks for your help. :-[

Just looked through the others on the page and it looks as if John ??Merrick/Dunwick could be a church warden as he witnessed a few -  so not a relation/friend.

Janet, what year did Anne die?

I dont have a Ancestry subscription but i note on the listings there is a possible Anne Roberts born about 1773,  location, township in Lancashire which would refer to Manchester.  May be worth looking it up.
