Hello,

I'm searching for early information, 1871 Census, about Arthur Samuel Perks born between 1863-64 and I guess in Birmingham. His father was possibly named Joseph Perks born between 1847-1849 not sure where. Arthur married Emma Hart (widow) formerly Smith in 1898 Birmingham. I would appreciate some help to trace the Perks family please.

Thank you,
Lizzy
