hi dave &gibbo

as for the saunders lot thanks gibbo as you say i have some census records but still hitting brick walls dont seem to be getting anywhere tried a researcher in northallerton she only came up with what we had also to go further it would cost $500 dollars also we paid for info for ireland a lot of info came back but not for our family so any help from your talented members would be excelent i will keep digging up the bones you never know someone might be able to help
is there any cds on any records that would be worth buying

:eek:$500. Hang out with us and you'll be ok :biggrin:

Im not sure about the CD's, one of our English members might be able to advise you further with that.

There are a couple of free sites which are quiet good.
Just incase you dont have them posting their links below.

http://www.freebmd.org.uk/

https://familysearch.org/

Also are you aware with living in Australia you can apply for a National Australia Library card which can allow you to search some English newspapers online?

http://www.nla.gov.au/

Finally who or what are you looking for? Can you give names and state if its a birth/marriage or death your looking for?
That will help members hopefully find what your looking for :)

Oops forgot this one.

If you want to order certificates from the UK, you can do this online on the below link.

Civil registration for births/marriages and deaths only come into been in 1837. For the times before 1837 we have to rely on baptism records, church records and burial records.

So with Edward been born around 1823 we have to try and find a baptism record for him. There wont be a birth certificate for him.

I dont have access to a lot of the records but hopefully another member might be able to help us.

I just found a slightly different death notice for his wife Ann.

The York Herald, and General Advertiser (York, England),
Saturday, February 08, 1845
On Tuesday, the 4th inst. aged 48 Mrs Ann Saunders lately of Warwick-place, Leeds and relict of the late Mr John Saunders, Inn Keeper Knaresbrough.


Thanks Dave for the census. Since John didnt show up in the 1841 census i guess he must have died before then.
Back to the newspapers i go :biggrin:
