I have an ancestor who Appeared. My GGrandfather came to Stoke on Trent sometime in the mid 1860s from Canada,I can't find his birth,I can't find him in either the 1851 Canada census or the 1861,he is a mystery..

Gosh, Oonagh - that's a problem at the other end of life!!  :D ::)

Don't suppose he could have been born or spent time in the US, before going to Canada (and eventually to England)?

No, no, Heather, Edward Martin DISappeared, didn't appear - pay attention!!  ::) ::) ;D ;D

Oonagh, I'm not up with US records but I'm sure there are ways to get access to their censuses and bdm records.  Hopefully someone from the US will read this thread and tell us!  Their 1880 census is on the LDS website but that's too late for you...

Come to think of it, I should probably check for Edward Martin on the US death records if I could find them, just in case... !! ??? ???

Hi MarieC,

I can empathise with your post! ;D

I have a Great Grandfather, Thomas Louis Newman, who appears on my Grandmother's Birth Cert in 1902, - Occupation 'Comedian' ;D ;D

...& then disappears!! I haven't been able to (conclusively) find any other records for him:-(

According to my Grandmother, he had another wife & family, - but I'm unable to verify this. I've never been able to find any record of him marrying my Great Grandmother, Frances Dyer, - although she calls herself Newman on my G/Mother's Birth Cert, - & her name is given as Frances Newman on her Death Cert.

It is very frustrating!!!

Best Wishes, Romilly.

Ouch, Romilly!! 

I take it your grandmother can't/couldn't shed any light on his mysterious disappearance!

If he had another wife and family, he could have changed his name or anything!! :( :( :'( :'( :'(

Well now, I do believe EVERYONE knows of Ernest, who vanished after his birth in 1887 and who reappeared for his marriage in 1912.     So I wont bore you with the minutia of the problem.   But he's out there somewhere and I can't find him and he's driving me nuts - nuts do you hear me stark raving absatively posalutely NUTS with no hope in sight for what little remains of my sanity . . . ... .   La la la  !!!
