I'm Brian from Norwich, researching the Emeney family.
My father's family are from Hadleigh in Suffolk. So far, I've managed to get a pretty good picture of them from c1890 to 1985, although I'm having a bit of trouble with an illegitimate daughter (born 1918) as her birth isn't registered under my grandmother's surname. Does anyone know if illegitimate children were ever registered under the father's name as is common practice today?
Best wishes,
