    families on passenger lists - always together?

    thanks I think this must have happened in my case then. Can I ask were infants always registered? I can't find the daughter who would have been 2 or 3 years old - she died only last year and had always talked about the journey she took when she was 3 years old on the ship to Canada. thanks...

    ages on marriage certificates

    thanks guys, Josie I think you may be right. I have her birth cert and have worked out that she would have been 19 at her first marriage. (Marrying a 26 year old) I have read somewhere about the full age being 21 and consent being required before that. Her father was high up in the police force...

    hello - so pleased to meet you all

    thanks Julie. It is strange one isn't it - I can't get my head around the fact that she has two children and leaves them with their father whilst she goes off with someone else and has two more children and then calls them almost the exact same names. :confused: I can't find a divorce and...
