Thanks Geoff.

That's more than I expected. The few shipping records that have a 2nd reel with details of parents do come in very handy.

1851 on FS:

Name: Stephen Doust
Age: 28
Gender: Male
Birthplace: Goudhurst, Kent
Relationship to Head of Household: Head

Different one by age, or is age way out? 53 ??

Oh. :rolleyes:

That 1851 on FS really is lacking some essential details.

Thanks Geoff.

Not the right one after all.
