Hi Carol,

Welcome to the forum. This is going to seem a bit dim witted but when you say beyond 1791 I take it as you want to go forward but your title says life before the census.

Hi Carol,

Welcome to the forum. This is going to seem a bit dim witted but when you say beyond 1791 I take it as you want to go forward but your title says life before the census.

Thanks for your reply Julie. I have come to a stop with my 4xggrandfather, born 1791. I cannot track him down on any sites inc. IGI. Does this mean I will have to go to parish records to trace him. I do have a marriage cert (old style) passed down the family, but obviously there is little info on it.
Sorry I didn't explain myself very well.

Hi Carol,

Sorry for the late reply.

The parish records would be the next option. Have you tried the earlier census to see if his parents are on it? You could try googling to see if there are any parish records online.
