Sarah Holmes - Barlow or Dronfield - Completed
« on: Saturday 10 November 12 18:06 GMT (UK) »
I'm looking for a Sarah Holmes born abt 1824 and a George Holmes born at 1817. Both from Barlow. I think their births might be recorded in Barlow or Dronfield PR's.
They might also have a brother Samuel. Thanks

familysearch.org has a Sarah bpt 12 September 1824 at Great Barlow, parents Samuel and Martha
There is also a George bpt Dec 1816 and a Samuel 1823 plus others to these parents.

Thank you so much. I'd done the seraches on FamilySearch.org but used Barlow instead of Great Barlow which returned nothing of interest. Doh!

Hi
I only put in Barlow Derbyshire and they came up. I am convinced that not all entries always show up on the first search. Not only on familysearch.org but other sites too.
It can't possibly be my fault! :D

Thanks again, I'll bear that in mind when seaching in future.
