Family History Beginners Board / Absent Father - Best Search Protocol?
« on: Sunday 22 August 21 15:42 BST (UK)  »
We're looking for advice on suggested search protocols to help us to discover more information on my husband's grandfather.

My father-in-law never knew his biological father as he deserted his mother either before he was born, or shortly after. All we have to go on is a 1929 bastardy court order for maintenance. This has the absent man's name, his profession, and an address where the court order was served, which we believe was the address of his place of work. If the absent father was about the same age as the mother, then this gives his birth year range as 1900 - 1910. Realistically this means he's not going to be on the 1911 census with a name/profession. We're hoping he'll appear on the 1921 census, but that won't be out for a while yet.

We have my father-in-law's short form birth certificate, and have applied to GRO for a copy of his entry of birth. We're hoping this might give us more information on the absent father; perhaps to confirm his occupation and the spelling of his family name.

Other than the above, we're not sure where to go or what to do next. Some advice, please?

Family History Beginners Board / 1930s Child Maintenance Orders - archives
« on: Sunday 14 March 21 19:11 GMT (UK)  »
Could anyone advise me where I might be able to find details of a Child Maintenance Order around 1929 to 1939. I believe it would have been dealt with by a Manchester Court.  I have scant details, other than mother and child's names and dob and that they lived in the Ardwick or Gorton areas. I do not know the name of the father from whom maintenance was being claimed.  Many thanks.

Family History Beginners Board / SEEKING Clarity on Dates v Vol & Page numbers
« on: Tuesday 15 September 20 17:25 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking up a marriage on BMD which I know would have been between 1901 and 1911.  I've believe I've found the man in 1906 but the woman appears in 1902.   On the face of it, one of these must be incorrect however the volume and page numbers are the SAME.   Do other members have similar experiences?  I can't see how this many years could be covered on the same page, but I'm quite new to this hobby !

Many thanks.

Family History Beginners Board / Seeking RONSON (Dalston) family history
« on: Tuesday 01 September 20 18:45 BST (UK)  »
I am one of the granddaughters of EMILY RONSON who was born in 1876 in Dalston.  Having obtained her Birth Certificate, I know that her Mother was HENRIETTA RONSON but her Father's name is absent. 

From the 1861 census, I know that Henrietta's Mother and Father were WILLIAM (Market Gardener) and MARY RONSON (born 1812 and 1820 respectively) and she had a sister HANNAH (born 1849)  and a brother JOHN (born 1838). I have been unable to find any records for HENRIETTA.   

Having hit a brick wall, I am looking for any ideas on how I can proceed. 

All suggestions warmly received. Thanks.
