    Google Streets

    Workhouses

    Alternatives for Polly?

    I cannot be sure but after looking i think that her name is likely to be Mary Ann. There are definately no Polly wright's of her birth date in 1871 census according to the 1881 census she was born in London. I will keep looking though. Thank you again. :)

    BMD Petition.

    I've signed too. I think it would be really good if access for these records was completely free, it would make it so much easier to get the information we need. :) Glees :)
