Hi Dawn,
             Your detail needs to be about ten years earlier to give you a fighting chance of finding your family, Once you can get back before 1901, you can view online the 1901 census for England for a small charge- usually about £5 minimum cost for 7 entries. It is a pretty good service, and gets you back a few years.
             I do not know if you are in England, but you can also view the BMD at many local libraries, on microfiche. This is also an excellent tool for finding births etc, and gives a year / quarter of year but does not give much more info apart from this.
             On FreeBMD, there are 23 entries for Cruikshank in Durham for 1837 onwards, but the latest is 1899, so not that useful. I find the best info to get before 1901 is family memories, old wills which often give brothers / sisters etc, and lots of luck. Have you tried a google search? This can pay dividends sometimes too.
            No permanent solutions, but I hit these brick walls all the time, and there are always ways to get round them.
Best

Hello Dawn,

Things seem a bit quite around here since April. It is possible that I am just jumping to conclusions. It may be difficult to prove the facts. There were Cruikshanks in Ireland during the time of Griffiths Valuation 1848 - 1864. They were in Counties Antrim, Armagh, Cavan, Down, Dublin and Monaghan. There was quite a movement from Ireland to the North West of England - Northumberland, Durham area. Christian names may not assist but worth a try. Among the Irish Cruikshanks there was a John and a George. The only other thing I can mention at the moment is Ferguson is a very common name in some parts of Ireland and much Ferguson history in Ireland is extremely well documented on the net.

One of my theories about genealogy is that things should be kept moving. If a slight mistake is made you have not moved yourself but the information which is no good to you is probably very useful to someone else. After the small initial burst of enthuasiasm nothing has happened for six months ? Have you discovered anything youself or put info on one of the boards which I have not noticed ?

Best Wishes, Christopher
