    Being picky?

    It's always possible that for some reason the owners of the trees with less than 3 children haven't found the others.

    Elusive Deaths?

    There are times when I can find the marriage of the parents and baptisms of some of the children but not necessarily all of them. I know there are other children because they appear in Censuses and later as witnesses at weddings even but their baptism is not to be found.

    And we think Smith is a common surname.

    My maiden name was Smith. My father's mother was a Smith who married a Smith - a double whammy. Christian names such as John, William and Ellen/Mary Ellen didn't help much. However there are times when I have found the more unusual surnames more difficult to trace because no one knew how to...

    Elusive Deaths?

    Not only do some disappear from the Census but there are some who aren't baptised or married either. There are so many baptisms , marriages and deaths that I cannot find I sometimes wonder how I manage to have a family tree!

    Elusive Deaths?

    It is always possible that they didn't die in the place you expected them to.
