Margaret died on the...

im confused why i cant find Edward any where but im sure he will turn up.
one last thing where is a good place to start searching family history in Ireland?
Thank you dochines i need to investigate this a little more but it certainly looks promising.
Im a little confused on one point that my grandmothers first name on her wedding and death certificates was Margaret not Evangaline, Evangaline being her middle name. But never the less it looks more...
Thanks for the suggestions i have had my suspicions that Margaret was possibly Irish, unfortunately i havnt any living relatives (that i know of) left to ask now which is making this all the more of a stuggle to locate her.
I do remember my mother showing me in a whos who when i was a child a...

Hi i have been helping my wife trace her family history and her Grandfather was born in Singapore just before WW2 is there away to find his birth details. If he was born to British parents would his birth be registered anywhere in the UK???
There is a great book from the Impreial War Museum entitled tracing your family history (army) it is very cheap about 5.99.
i found it very usefull.
but the best place to ask questions is here.
Thanks for Sarah Sawyer but i dont think she is Richards mother as i have a marriage entry for her at Leigh Surrey in 1808 marring a James Briggs http://www.familysearch.org/eng/default.asp.
So i would say that would rule her out
I have found Richard Sawyer in the census's of 1841, 1851, 1861, so it appears he died between 1861 and 1871 interestingly he is living away from the family in 1861 http://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=uki1861&h=6907063&ti=5538&indiv=try&gss=pt .
Thanks for the help...
Well i guess i was wrong because i have just found the census return for Richard Sawyer who was christened in Stoke D'Abernon and it states his occupation as agricultural laborer. But in the same census for my Richard Sawyer his occupation he is a police constable, so it looks like im back to...
I dont know when he married unfortunately i do not know when Richard married Mary Miller bus as the youngest son was born abt 1838 its quite probable the married before 1837 so may not be able to find a marriage certificate.
I havnt searched for other Sawyer's born in Newdigate throughly as yet.
