Coincidence
« on: Friday 19 December 08 08:55 GMT (UK) »
I've just realised as I was filling in the search form on Ancestry that I was searching for a newly-born boy in a census whose parents were Joseph and Mary!  ;D
Looking at ALSTON in south Ribble area, ALSTEAD and DONBAVAND/DUNBABIN etc. everywhere, HOWCROFT and MARSH in Bolton and Westhoughton, PICKERING in the Whitehaven area.

Was that the Bethleham census?  :)- after all, that is why M & J went there from Nazareth!.

Come to think of it, the Christmas story has lots of Family Historian connections -
A census
A birth
Illegitimacy (apparently)
Emigration (they fled to Egypt soon after the birth to get away from Herod)
Infant mortality (Herod killing all baby boys)

etc etc
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex
