i am pretty sure that ROBERT died in the 1960s/1970s and Emily in the early 1980s
Ooh, that's a little vague  :P

I've done that numerous times for all the births, marriages and deaths which I can't find in the indexes.  You can build up quite a speed after a while :)  Everyone I've looked for in this way, I've found.  Occasionally it can take longer than you might imagine - when (as in a couple of my cases) the relatives were over 90 when they died.  Just be methodical.

You start with a known date (for deaths, the latest date you know they were alive) and work forwards.

But remember to keep a note of where you're up to ...

I just have a sheet of paper with all the years down one side, and then I just write in 1, 2, 3, 4 as I check quarter 1, Q2, Q3, and Q4 of each year.  I also find it useful to have a column to the left of the year, giving my relative's approximate age in that year - one less place for the eye to look when you spot a possible match.
On Ancestry, it will always open at the first page of the first letter of the surname that you choose, but most of the time you can guess the page where your surname will be and just type that straight in as soon as you can, rather than waiting for the first page to load.

If "Francis" is Emily's mother then F must have married after 1901 (and E born after 1901) because I can't find that combination.

I always thought Francis with an "I" was male and with "E" female - ah well.

I can't either, Merc.

Are you sure it's not Robert's mother who was Frances, Matt?

Hi Matt, my name is Jordan Gadd and I think we're distant relatives! I know this original post is quite old but I just felt obliged to reply anyway so here goes. My dad's name is Michael Gadd and my grandad was Francis Gadd. Francis Gadd was born in 1928, his dad was Frank Gadd (my great granddad) who was born in 1905. Frank Gadd was Robert Gadd's brother, I believe Frank was the youngest sibling. Robert Gadd's full DOB was 14/12/1894, he married Emily Cutler in 1922. Emily Cutler was born: 11/08/1901. Our great granddad's were siblings! Perhaps we could help each other learn more about our ancestors? I hope you see this and reply! All the best, Jordan.
