Hi Chris

i only registerd   yesterday would have asked then but we had a mega thunderstorm so had to switch off as it got a bit hairy, i have just got my original birth certificate and have found out that my real name is Antwis i was born here in nottingham  but i don,t think she came from here as it was in 1951 and upto yet i have found no trace of anybody by that name,also my adopted mother  told me that she did not come from nottingham anyway,  does this make sense to you ???

Hi there

Just had a quick look on the 1891 census (out of curiosity mind you) for the surname ANTWIS.

There were 29 people listed with that name - mostly it seemed in Staffordshire, Cheshire and Lancashire.

What information did the certificate give - was your mums name on there as well / was a father listed.

Sorry to ask such questions but you can reply by personal message if you want

The more I know, the more I can possibly help you.

Hi there

I think my first port of call would be the Family History Centre in London or the Records Office at Nottingham or other county record Office and start looking back through the GRO records from the date of your birth in 1951 (well 15 years back from that date (1936)) for a birth of a Marian Antwis.

You are lucky here in that you have a rare surname - there cant be many around at that time called Marian Antwis - you will probably find her about 1931 or there abouts.

At the Gro you have books (big books) to go through, whilst at the county records office it will all be on fiche or film - much easier to find.  Personally O love looking through all those books.

Other than that - www.1837.com is the same GRO indexex on line, but you have to pay to see the entries (10p per time - could cost you 40/50p per year x 10 = 5 or more) - but may be cheaper than going to a record office.  When you find her birth and reference number then you can take it further because her mum and possibly dad should be listed.

There is freebmd on line, but they started at 1837 and are working forward - got up to about 1908 at the moment, so they will not help you much.

Hope this helps

Hi Chris, I noticed that you don't like to search the NFHS 1841/1851 disc, well there is a nice little program just for the 1841/1851 and the NFHS Baptisms,Burials and Marriages that you might like to try. It's free but you do have to register.
