This is an interesting brick wall. Well, any brick wall that isn't mine is interesting. Anyway, could Frances have been George's first wife? Do you have a date of death for her? I found a George Parker living at 115 Wardour Street, St. James, Westminster, on the 1881 census. His occupation...
I'm assuming that you found your cousin's death listed on the SSDI. A marriage can't be traced by SSN. If you have an idea about where or when the marriage took place, you may be able to find it via newspaper archives on line. Also, as she is deceased, you may be able to find more...
Just for future notice, if you contact the attorney general's office for the state from which the company was operating, or the division of consumer affairs for that state, they'll go to bat for you. Sorry you've been scammed!
What information do you have? Do you know when they came to England? Maybe you could try searching the English census - sometimes it will give a town or city with the country of birth. Could give a starting point, anyway! Good luck!
Does anyone have a link to a good site for finding out what English county a town is in? Right now, I am specifically looking for Coventry, but I have a feeling I may be running into this problem again.
Also, has anyone here researched ancestors who have immigrated from England to Australia...
I've just registered here - the site looks great! I am researching several names, which should be listed at the bottom of my signature. (I think - guess I'll find out as soon as I post.)
Anyway, I look forward to doing more research here.
