    Sisters? Florence and Rose Anne Smith in Salford, Greater Manchester

    Hi Dave I've not ordered any birth certs as can't pinpoint it to the right one. There are loads of Florence Smith's in Salford and although I can find a few on the lancashire parish site and the familysearch org site I can't pinpoint the actual one. Not knowng the parents means I can't be...

    Sisters? Florence and Rose Anne Smith in Salford, Greater Manchester

    I know Dave, it's not proving simple to work out at all. I haven't found anything else on William's parents and siblings. Having Smith as a surname doesn't help either! I use a variant of research sources and have found various birth possibilities for Florence and this is the site I've been...

    Sisters? Florence and Rose Anne Smith in Salford, Greater Manchester

    I know.... This Smith family is a right lot to work out. I haven't even started on the Lynch side yet as trying to sort Rose and Florence out but William is definately not helping!

    Sisters? Florence and Rose Anne Smith in Salford, Greater Manchester

    makes me wonder now if I have the right family for William... On ancestry I can see three potential wedding banns for william henry smith and rose ann lynch but can't see the details.

    Sisters? Florence and Rose Anne Smith in Salford, Greater Manchester

    Also on another tree on ancestry someoone has got Rose's and Florence's father as John Smith but still Rose Anne Lynch as mother. I have no idea why and can't find any records to verify it. I also can't get a reply as to why they have added John but not included William anywhere as I know for a...

    Sisters? Florence and Rose Anne Smith in Salford, Greater Manchester

    The family always pondered about this and I thought I had found the answer that they were sisters as I found the cencus records with known addresses. Then I saw that in 1901 the two girls were down as nieces not daughters and that is what threw me further. When I questioned family they told me...

    Sisters? Florence and Rose Anne Smith in Salford, Greater Manchester

    Hiya, thanks for replying. It is a bit of a one! As I said earlier the only reason I am persuingthis is because both Rose and Florence's children never knew if they were friends or sisters. As their children went on to have daughters it became obvious they were sisters or cousins and we know...
