The Common Room / Electorol Registers Help
« on: Wednesday 12 September 12 08:16 BST (UK)  »

I would like some sort of help getting me on the right track to finding out who an ancestor was living with for 30 years in London.

His name is John Constantino Fone and from 1937 he was living with a lady called Matilda Owen and through the years various other "Owen's" - i am particularly interested in who Matilda is? Is she a girlfriend?? Also there is a Terence Owen who turns up later on in the registers - is this the son of Matilda?

Any help would be gratefully appreciated

Thanks in advance
