Hello,

I have a Ernest Shaw, on his marriage cert. it states he was born in Lincolnshire England in 1869. His father was Johnathon Shaw and his mother was Mary Shaw nee Dobson. Because he married in New Zealand and died there I am trying to ascertain when he left England. He may have come to NZ on his own. My query is can anyone help re info of any kind from 1869. Census, electoral rolls etc. I have tried but nothing is coming up. As always any help much appreciated.

Cant understand why Ernest didn't know where he was born when he married. Thank you for your time taken to look all this info up for me it fills in lots of holes. Best genealogy day today lol
