    Adoption query

    Thanks Elaine You are correct to prove/disprove I would need to apply for her birth cert. What I have written here is limited as she is still alive so I didn't want to invade anyone's privacy, just clarify a logical possibility and of course logic doesn't come into family history research...

    William Moss Northamptonshire

    Thanks, it is certainly worth considering, however I would have expected him to be buried in Cold Ashby however it is worth looking to see what I can find out about any burial in Daventry area. It is always difficult when there are several people of the same full name and added difficulty...

    Where can you look when the trail goes cold?

    I would completely agree with Guy and it is easily done although you need to look and prove each event with a record, you will find even if you did Records office and Parish Church research 10 , 20 years ago more records will now be available to look at and the important thing is that you...

    George Henshaw, prior to 1853

    Hi Do you know where he was born? There are several George Henshaws on both the 1841 and 1851 census across the country but matching them to a John Henshaw is more difficult.... This is a complete 'shot in the dark' .....for some reason I was drawn to one John Henshaw in the 1841 census...
