Very nice thank you thank you... I am glad to make progress on this my Dad's first cousin that I tracked down in Scotland gave up due to lack of progress on the Whiteman line. I am glad I you responded to this.

Stuck on Thomas Whiteman (born 1811 Heanor, Derbyshire, England)

I also wanted to Find What my Thomas Whiteman's relation is to the other Thomas Whiteman that lived very near him.

Also does anyone know why a birth registry GRO would have a different spelling of a last name
for example
 my Grandfather George Leslie Whiteman official birth cert that I have has his kast name Whiteman on it where as on the GRO website catalogue it is spelled WEIGHTMAN

Name WEIGHTMAN, GEORGE  LESLIE  Mother's Maiden Surname: HARTLEY    GRO Reference: 1910  D Quarter in BELPER  Volume 07B  Page 644

His Aunt Eliza has her name at the GRO as being spelled WEIGHTMAN but all other documents it is Whiteman???

The informant may have been illiterate, and the registry cleric wrote the name as he heard, and thought it might be spelled.
The standardisation of spelling is a quite recent occurrence.
