Birth 26/9/1902 HELP to trace
« on: Monday 28 May 07 10:26 BST (UK) »
On the IGI it says Elizabeth Rogers born Newcastle 26/9/1902. I know she was born Sept 1902 and the parents are correct  Robert Rogers and Elizabeth Robinson.

I know that children were born Lanchester, South Shields but this one says Newcastle but I don't know if that is near the Durham Area.

Can anyone help

The IGI records was submitted by a Mormon church member. It is not a record extracted from parish registers - so it is an 'I think' entry but probably haven't really got much of a clue and should be treated with caution.

However there should be a subsequent birth registration in the civil registration to match such a birth (which could also be in the following quarter since you have 6 weeks to register a birth). Nothing showing in either the September or December quarter (for county Durham or Northumberland - Newcastle was in Northumberland) - the nearest would be this birth registered in the June quarter

Births Jun 1902 
Rogers  Elizabeth Mary     Newcastle T.  10b 57

What else do you know about Elizabeth that might help track her?

Elizabeth is one of 14 children.

The family lived at 12 Edward Street, South Shields on the 1901 census but the next child after Elizabeth was born Sept 1903 in Scotland.

I have exhausted Scotlands People for her birth but not there.

Isobel,

You say that you 'know she was born in September 1902' - what evidence have you got for this?

What was Elizabeth's full name on her marriage and on her death? Was it just Elizabeth or did she have a second name?
What was the age given on her death registration?

Regards

Her Full name was Elizabeth Rogers according to her family and her marriage certificate.

Her children tell me that she was born and married in the month of September.  Her marriage certificate states she was 21 on her marriage on 14th September 1923

If she married in England/Wales there was only one Elizabeth Rogers who married in the September quarter of 1923. She married in Wandsworth registration district to someone with the surname of Bickerstaff. All the other Elizabeth Rogers who married in that quarter had middle names. Or did she marry in Scotland and have her death registered there?

She married 14th September 1923 aged 21 in Hamilton Scotland and died Feb1963 aged 61.

This all makes her born 1901.  Her family have had me chasing 1902
